What is a hackathon?

An event where diverse, multidisciplinary participants gather, collaborate, and build software-based solutions that address real-world needs during a 48-72-hour span. Hackathons foster new relationships among community researchers, encouraging the sharing of knowledge and ideas. Participants are provided the opportunity to flex their creative muscles while building solutions that address existing challenges – often acquiring new skills in the process.
