Participants with different backgrounds (Technology, Operations, Design, and Product) come together, form teams around a problem or idea, and collaboratively code a unique solution from scratch — which generally takes shape in the form of websites, technology solutions, mobile apps, and product features. Technology leaders guide and evaluate the projects / ideas and top teams get an opportunity to showcase their project to the entire organization and win exciting prizes.
Hackathon is a catalyst that reenergizes and propels us ahead. Every year lot of these ideas / projects is picked up and transformed into reality in form of a product or a feature. We also did our first remote Hackathon this year in September! It was an exhilarating experience as over 250+ participants coded it out over a mega 36 hours marathon.
