Who should be there?

Software developers, clinicians, health sector managers, patients and anyone with an interest in healthcare technology. Hackathons bring together people with a wide range of skills from many different backgrounds, who would not usually get the opportunity to work together. You don’t need special technical skills to attend. If you wish to have fun while making a positive difference to the New Zealand health sector – come along. If you think you’ll be out of your comfort zone – come along. Everyone can make a positive contribution to a hackathon.

 

What happens during the weekend?

There is an optional ‘how to pitch ideas’ workshop at 5pm on Friday then the event formally opens with networking at 6pm. After some (short) welcome speeches at 6.30pm anyone with an idea for a product makes a 1 minute pitch and seeks team members. Teams form organically and work on solutions for the rest of the weekend. There are mentors available throughout the weekend to help out and offer advice.

 

How is the winner chosen?

Each team has the opportunity to present their work on Sunday afternoon. We invite an expert judging panel (that includes clinicians and start-up experts) to watch the presentations and to award prizes as they see fit, based on the judging criteria.

 

How can I support the hackathon?

The event is not-for-profit and free to attend so everything is done on a volunteer basis. Most things (such as the venue and WIFI) are donated, but some items we need to pay for (such as catering). We would like to offer prizes for the best projects. If you can help us then we’d love to hear from you. Perhaps you could offer us cash, prizes or you want to be a mentor. However you can support us, please email us.

 

Who owns the solutions?

No-one. Hackathons are an open source environment. Refer to our event terms and conditions for all the legal jargon about what this means for intellectual property. Being open source enables the event to have an open, transparent and altruistic atmosphere. It’s just a bunch of friendly people working together and learning from each other. Come along!
