(*) Hackathon is a common term in IT, referring to a method of assessment for software development. One of Hackathon’s typical characteristics is teams performing concentrated work in a short amount of time – continuously from 1 to 3 days to create software that solves a particular problem posed by the competition. 

By now, Hackathon has become a common form of assessment that attracts the attention of investors looking to identify talents and innovative solutions. Big tech companies such as Google and Facebook all organize internal Hackathons to galvanize ideas and encourage experts’ creativity.
