Create. Challenge. Together. You may not know, but these are our company values, and I could not find any event that embraces them all more like our hackathon.
A hackathon’s primary goal is to solve some problem by creating something new, something unique, something you have in your head but never found time, resources, or courage to make. Whether it is some new product, shared template, development framework, or process optimization, the only constraint is the hackathon topic, but more on that down in my recipe.
It is usually not so easy. If it were, you would already do it, right? You have limited time at a hackathon, only one attempt, which makes it even more challenging. But don’t worry, stay focused on your problem. You have to evaluate your solution; you don’t have to build the final product. Please don’t go into nitpicky details; it is only a waste of time.
Taking aside company team building, I could not recall any occasions where you can do something together as a company at the same time. Use this time for all-hands team statuses and presentations. You can mix-up teams or try a whole different team role than you are used to.

That was the recipe for our hackathon we baked this year; you can change the ingredients and duration based on your taste 😉
