Sensis / Pollenizer Hackathon #sapihack
Saturday, 24 March 2012 at 9:00 AM - Saturday, 31 March 2012 at 7:00 PM (AEDT)
Sydney, New South Wales
SATURDAY MARCH 24 & SATURDAY MARCH 31
The Sensis / Pollenizer Hacakthon is a 2 day product development bootcamp.
On Saturday March 24 all the idea generators, code masters and design maestros come together to brainstorm. Ideas are sparked, teams are formed, products are scoped, and it all culminates in a series of pitches to our panel of industry experts. All teams get feedback and the best are encouraged to continue on.
Teams will have a week in between to research their audience, model their financials, plan their marketing, debate features, discuss strategies, and bond together over their product ideas.
Then on Saturday March 31 the group hackathon begins as teams return to design and develop a working prototype of their product.
