2:45 PM Sunday Room: S-150Ever had an idea for an app or a website but never knew how to get it built quickly? Hackathons might be your answer. A hackathon is where developers and non-developers spend their weekend together building crazy ideas and are rewarded with prizes. In the Bay Area, multiple hackathons are held weekly and offer a great place to meet new people and build out an idea you have been thinking about for awhile but never had the time to actually do it!
JeanCarl will talk about the process he uses to take an idea to a functioning prototype in 24 hours. Topics include: finding the talent, ideation, choosing the technology stack, planning the stages of development, working in a team environment, modularization, pitching the prototype, winning prizes, and going to market.
Attendees will learn about pitfalls throughout the process and gain an appreciation of how you can take an idea to market via a hackathon. This session is designed for everyone, no coding experience required.
