Hackathons are a powerful tool for gleaning API feedback from your developer community. They typically involve large numbers of participates, coding for hours, while being fed fast food and competing for prizes. By that standard our first hackathon was humble - 24 participants, no free food, prizes or karaoke. However, the results were impactful including:
• Cross functional team cooperation and comradery
• Instant feedback to development team for improvements
• Creation of a shareable samples catalog.
In this session you will follow our hackathon journey from crazy idea to execution.
• How we got cross-functional teams engaged in the event.
• Goals we wanted to accomplish
• How participants were organized
• Major findings on event day
We will also share lessons learned from our hackathon experience that will hopefully help and encourage you in planning your own hackathon.
