Annual Hackathons Organized in Turkey

What is a hackathon? It is one of the important questions that many people are curious about. Hackathon is a collaborative event where individuals with a common idea come together, work as a team in the same atmosphere within a specified time frame, and create innovative ideas, turning them into code. All the code related to the project, including the first and last lines of the transformed idea, should be written in the same environment. Hackathon participants usually go through a short training to gain knowledge about the process. It is important for everyone in the hackathon team to have a thorough understanding of the subject matter and for each member to put forth their best effort in order to achieve a successful outcome. At the end of the hackathon, participants are asked to create a website or mobile app prototype.
