On Wednesday, we take a break from discussions and run a one-day hackathon. Hackathons typically explore new technologies or even create new product prototypes. Past hackathons have ranged from hardware projects to the exploration of new languages, and some have focused on a particular product or technology.

All you need is a group that wants to explore a topic. You’ll probably start forming groups on Monday and Tuesday, as you discover other people’s interests.

Hackathons take place in either the conference venue or the various houses that are rented by groups in town. The evening of the hackathon, results are presented in the Hackathon Showcase Lightning Talks.
