The past weekend I was lucky enough to participate in an event held by Koding (http://koding.com) titled "Global Hackathon" (https://koding.com/Hackathon).
Hackathon - is a kind of time-limited events, where participants work on projects for which in ordinary daily life there is no time as a rule. The main idea is to bring the idea to the finished prototype of the final product in the shortest possible time. Hackathon is named this way because participants can use all possible tools and ways to achieve this goal.
The event was attended by 2000 teams from all around the world, selected from more than 19,000 applications. Maximum number of participants in the team was equal to 5. Many people like me was not fortunate enough to find teammates and had to work alone. 51 of the judges will find winners among completed projects and the most worthy of them will be awarded.
