The Anatomy of a Hackathon
Monday, December 17th from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Pearson + General Assembly
Ever wonder what it takes to run a successful hackathon? Ever wonder what it takes to build a winning application in less than 48 hours?
A hackathon is an intense event during which teams comprised of designers, developers, and people with other skill sets come together to solve a problem or turn ideas into an application. The success of a hackathon comes down to having a great event organizer, content experts, and most importantly developers to make these ideas a reality.
Just over a year ago Pearson launched its API developer platform with the goal of opening up content to fuel the innovation of new applications. Pearson's APIs have since been integrated in applications built at hackathons worldwide.
Join our all-star panel of developer evangelists, event organizers, and successful hackers for an in-depth glimpse into the rapidly growing hackathon world.
