Intro To: Hackathons
What is a hackathon? A hackathon involves groups of people coming together to solve problem s creatively. Simple enough right? Not...exactly, for anyone new, the idea of joining a group or forming one can be daunting, let alone coming up with great ideas and making them a reality.
