Event description

Description

What is a Hackathon?

A Hackathon is an event where a group of volunteer developers gathers for the collaborative generation of ideas & prototyping over several days. It is a creative process frequently used in the field of digital innovation.

The event often takes place on weekends to make it easier for employees or self-employed workers to be available. It can be organized by a school, a company, an administration, a specific sector, etc.

There are no established rules governing this type of event. However, each time, the following essential points are included:

  • Choice of projects by those who carry them out;
  • Very short lead time;
  • Group dynamics and the challenge of emulation or competition;
  • The obligation to produce a working prototype.

For more information, contact us: hackathon@cnc.be

What will really happen during this weekend?

Friday evening:

  • Presentation of the data and usable means, the guiding ideas or objectives sought ("pitch") by the project leaders;
  • Vote of the participants (those who will develop) to select a number of projects proportional to the number of participants present, each selected project must have at least two or three developers/designers. Sometimes trainers or special guests are made available or creative techniques are encouraged ("Fly on the wall", "Graffiti Wall", "Immersive" techniques...) ;
  • Team building, and development (for about 48 hours). Sometimes observers/mediators can intervene, reminding us of the role of icebreakers, leaders and teamwork.

Saturday and Sunday:

  • Intensive team project development;
  • Regular contact with coaches to question, help and guide groups in their project development.

Sunday afternoon:

  • Demonstration of prototypes of part or all of the project in front of a jury of specialists (and sometimes with the opinion of the other teams and an invited audience);
  • Award ceremony. Many prices to be won!

Why should I participate?

  • Special theme: "Smart Buildings for Smart Cities"
  • Dedicated coachs for each approach (IT, International laws, Business, Scale-up, Pitch...)
  • Stakeholders concerned by your issues, the possibility of networking with a direct impact on your activities;
  • A possibility of supporting an innovative internal project to which you cannot devote time in a traditional way: multidisciplinary actors who can criticize your project, improve it. After the weekend, you can come out with a prototype of your idea that can be used;
  • Support after the event for the best ideas during the "follow-up day";
  • It is a unique experience to live, as much by the notion of teamwork, the intensity of the weekend as by the friendliness shared throughout the event.
