What is a hackathon?
A hackathon is an event in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers and thought leaders, collaborate on software & hardware projects. Competitors work intensively, competing to present the best solution in a given time frame. Participants attend to compete, learn, and network with like-minded individuals and potential employers.
Why should I be a sponsor of #ExpeditionHacks?
Sponsoring a hackathon is a great way to get access to the top IT and technical talent. Hackathons are quickly replacing career fairs and other traditional methods of recruiting and marketing. The next generation of software engineers and entrepreneurs are coming to hackathons to have fun, compete for prizes, and learn new skills.
