A hackathon is an intensive programming session where developers work in teams, over a 24-to-48-hour period, to produce and present a prototype of a new app. Developers love a challenge and – given a short timeframe and a small-but-significant prize for the best app – they will be drawn to your hackathons. This will help you engage developers, stimulate the creation of innovative apps against your API and grow your API as a brand in itself.
Organizing a hackathon presents a range of technical and logistical challenges – from promoting the event through the relevant channels, to providing the technical resources developers will need in order to leverage your API, to booking a suitably-equipped workspace for the event. The Layer API Academy can help you with the full range of key organizational and promotional tasks, to ensure your hackathons yield real results.
