Q. What are ‘Hackathons’?
Hackathons (also known as a hack day, hackfest or codefest) are events where participants work together on a pre-defined set of problems, intensively, for a period of a few days to generate functional code that may be encapsulated into a device.
Mostly ‘hacking’ means coding, programming, software development – but there can be other creative activities involved. Although a Hackathon could be solely competitive, IntuiCompTeraScienceHackathon will be a cooperative/collaborative competition, moving towards product development using Machine Intelligence/Mathematical modelling.
Hackathons bring together network operators, researchers, designers, students, developers, testers and maybe even experts in other areas (communication experts such as journalists, analysts, activists, economist, etc.) who can also contribute through their experience and background, despite lacking in technical skills.
