How does it work?
Companies sponsor the hackathon and challenge attendees work in teams to write software, build gadgets and generally make creative use of their products and they have 24 hours to do it.
It's a lot of fun, and sponsors award prizes for the most innovative and creative ideas.
For attendees there's free food, drink, prizes and other great surprises on offer as well as a fun, frantic 24 hours getting their hacks together.
For sponsors, it's a unique opportunity to share their products with a room full of creative people, get rapid, honest feedback, share the culture of their organisation and leave a lasting, meaningful impression on everyone involved.
