Real world experience
Participants have a chance to work on real projects, using real technologies, that solve real problems. Hackathons help prepare participants for their entrance into the workforce. In addition, the environment at hackathons is very similar to the work environment at many technology startups.
When a room is filled with like-minded and highly motivated participants working together to solve a problem for a weekend, it is inevitable for friendships to be formed. Participants meet other participants from around the world and many work together on projects after the hackathon.
Participants are given a chance to interact with representatives from the world’s top brands. Sponsors send representatives and professional mentors to hackathons.
What happens after the hackathon is just as important as the event itself. A hackathon leaves an organization invigorated and eager to spend their free time working together on projects. Not only do participants attend more hackathons and win more prizes at them, participants are more motivated to sacrifice their free time to learn more and work on projects with their peers.
Preparation for Careers
At hackathons, participants learn skills directly needed for technical careers. Participants have a chance to learn both technical and soft skills through the process of working on a team to build innovative new solutions to problems, often using new technologies.
