The term hackathon is a portmanteau of hacking and marathon. They are events organized to fasttrack the ideation and development process of technical solutions like an application or software. They are a valuable tool when done successfully, as they can lead to significant progress in a matter of hours or days. Originally, it was teams of computer programmers, tech project managers and UX designers that would participate. Nowadays, hackathons have become a term used for a broader range of events aimed at building solutions with others in short period of time. A hackathon is usually presented as a competition. A group of mentors and a jury guide and assess participants, and will award those that executed the assignment best.
