What is a Virtual Hackathon

 What is a virtual hackathon?


A hackathon is an event where people come together for a short period of time to collaborate on a practical project, build something to test and create breakthrough thinking.  This hackathon is virtual, meaning that the teams taking part won’t be in the same physical place as the other teams. They will be in their own locality so there is no need to travel. The teams will link with the hackathon using an online platform (for which support and training will be provided).


No previous experience of either hackathons or virtual platforms is needed. Enthusiasm, energy and wanting to make a difference are more important.
