I bet everyone has heard what a hackathon is, but if you didn’t:

A hackathon is an event, usually hosted by a tech company or organization, where programmers, students and sometimes even professors get together for a short period of time to collaborate on a project.

Currently, as a contractor, I am working full time at Vodafone and get the chance on a regular basis to participate with the hackathons organized there.

I believe hackathons are a great way to break up your coding routine; develop applications using new technologies or approaches; adding value to the company and yourself.
