By convening data scientists, engineers, designers, and other stakeholders to work on challenges with “marathon”-like intensity, data-focused hackathons can spark meaningful collaborations and produce viable solutions. This hands-on, interactive workshop seeks to empower organizers and participants with lessons learned and best practices from previous hackathons. Workshop attendees will meet and collaborate with other innovation enthusiasts from academia, government, nonprofits, and industry as we capture insights about the design, implementation, and scalability of data-focused hackathons.
Hackathons have evolved over the years to include participants with a variety of skillsets responding to a variety of challenges with assistance from mentors who coach participants towards the development of a final product or idea before it is presented to a panel of judges. At its core, a hackathon is a discovery tool that can help to engage new talent, uncover new ideas, and accelerate new solutions for your agency or organization.
Hackathons offer innovative ways to strengthen teamwork, raise productivity, and engage the community. They have been embraced by universities, venture capitalists, government agencies and corporate businesses because they present a unique opportunity to develop prototypes and foster the creation of new ideas.
We’ve collaborated with industry experts to help civic innovators engage with their communities and find urban solutions through tech. The Hackathon Workshop is a step-by-step training to planning a successful hackathon. The workshop program includes information on design, logistics, and participants.
