My hackathon participation path started about a year and a half ago. I managed to take part in more than 20 various sizes and topics events, which took place in Moscow, Helsinki, Berlin, Munich, Amsterdam, Zurich and Paris during the current time.
In all these events I’ve been engaged in data analysis in various forms. I like visiting new cities, establish new contacts, come up with fresh ideas, quickly implement old ones fast as well as feeling adrenaline during a speech and results announcement. The current post is the first of three ones, devoted to hackathon topics. I’m going to tell you about hackathon concept, as well as the reason to participate in hackathons.
