Hackathons

Over the past year, some of my fondest memories are those that I’ve had at Hackathons. A Hackathon is an event in which a group of creators gets together and for a brief period of time, devotes all of their energy to the completion of a project. Amazing products are often created at these events for the following reasons (in my opinion:

  • People who attend Hackathons are hard-workers who are genuinely excited about the work they are doing
  • The hyperfocus demanded by Hackathons is the ideal mental state for maximum productivity
  • The collaborative spirit and comradery at these events makes hard work greatly enjoyable

This is a great recipe for productivity. I hope to both attend more Hackathons and take elements of Hackathon culture into my everyday work.
