What is a hackathon?

A free weekend event that brings together healthcare and technology professionals to brainstorm, collaborate and develop solutions that will benefit the health sector.

 

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 a hackathon?

After (short) welcome speeches 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.
