First of all I want to thank everyone that participated to the hackathon for their patience, passion and determination. I am glad that everyone had fun building the ideas they are passionate about. In the end, it comes to the lessons you learn participating to this kind of event, which is why we consider everyone a winner.
Here is what I learned from this unique experience:
What other people thought about this event
My impression about the first hackathon organized by PPR is a good one. The organization was very good, the projects were very interesting, but if I had to choose between a training and a hackathon, I would choose the training because hackathons are very demanding, both physical and intellectually.Developer
For me it was an interesting experience, a way to discover new technologies and work with new people. A chance to escape from the daily routine by having the freedom to choose the type of project that I want to develop. A hackathon represents a great moment to discover new ideas and opportunities.Project manager
I have never imagined that people can build so much in such a limited time. The teams that participated to the Hackathon have demonstrated the capacity to create and implement real products having very limited resources at their disposal. Congratulations to the organizers! I am waiting with high interest the next edition!
In my point of view the hackathon was a success. I looked at it as a way to socialize and exchange experiences. For future events before building the team, I would suggest having a short introduction about each participant, what technologies he is familiar with, what technologies he is passionate about and maybe some general stuff. All in all, everything was ok. Congratulations for the organizers.
