Internal company hackathons can be incredibly valuable. They're growing in popularity and for some great reasons.
If your organization hasn't run internal hackathons before, getting started can be a challenge. How do you explain to Product, or VP R&D, that you're about to spend at least a day working on anything but their features & bug fixes? What can you do to make sure that the teams start the day motivated and ready to work on worthwhile & interesting projects? How do you structure the day in a way that'll be fun & memorable, but still give people a chance to build something they're proud to demo?
We'll talk about what I've learned running hackathons for different organizations. I'll share my successes, my failures & everything you need to know to run your first company hackathon.
