Hackathon in London, England, on October 17th has come and gone, and the result is that we’re now back to wondering about the event’s value to the world.
As well as a good buzz of buzz, the event also created a few new products, such as a new web shooter, a new mobile app, and an app that can show people that their images are actually being manipulated.
It’s all good, right?
But if you’ve been following this blog and know that Hackathon has been a bit of a rollercoaster, this post might give you a bit more insight into what went wrong.
Hackathon was an incredibly exciting and exciting event, and we’re happy to say that it’s all come to an end.
So what happened?
We all knew that Hackathons were awesome, but what happened to the Hackathon experience?
In a nutshell, Hackathon was a great way for us to get a feel for what’s possible in the world, and it was also the first time we had the chance to use the new tools and techniques we were taught at the Hackathone.
The Hackathon team were able to use new techniques and tools to learn a lot about their industry, and they have been able to bring that knowledge to the consumer market, but the results have been a little disappointing.
For example, the Hacktivity mobile app has a new feature, that lets you capture and share your screenshots and videos from Hackathones event, but we can’t tell you how to use it, because we don’t know what the final version will look like.
As a result, some of our friends and colleagues had trouble sharing their Hackathoned projects, or simply finding time to upload them, even though it’s a great experience for everyone.
We hope Hackathon’s community will have a similar experience in the future.
If you’re interested in learning more about the Hackthons development, there are lots of resources out there.
For example, we’ve written a series of posts on how to build your own Hackathonic app, as well as some tips for using the new Hackathon tools.
If you’re keen to know more about how the Hackttious team are planning to use Hackathon, there’s a blog post about that.
But we want to go back to the basics, and let you know about our experience of what went right and what went badly.
Hackathon 2015 is still going strong, and I’m sure we’ll have more to share in the coming weeks, but I wanted to put out a warning: Hackathon 2015 was not the last time we would host Hackathonies, so don’t worry if you’re not sure if Hackathon 2014 was a success or not.
