With the support of my first two angel-referees, I attended my very first hackathon. Here's a diagram with it explained. Please note that this is only version one. I will keep updating this.
The grand conclusion is that there are totally beginner friendly hackathons, and it is a lot of fun, despite at times it may be intimidating to be with a roomful of experts.
- People take turns to go up and present their ideas/projects, can optionally form groups/tables
- Work on a group project, spontaneous project, or your very own
- Optional: at times there may be a beginner friendly table, join it to work on a tutorial, get help, ask questions, do whatever you want
- Keep in mind, every hackathon is different, some may have competitions, deadline, no beginner table, etc... I will post different versions of this diagram soon~
- Endless food/drinks. I learnt that unlike writing an essay, coding doesn't flow with alcohol. I quickly switched from one sip of beer to a doubleshot Starbucks.
In my newsletter to angel-referee fund contributors, I will detailed my findings in newsletters~ The goal is to have something to share with the public but also some perks for the contributors that are exclusive.
