Definition

A hackathon is typically defined as an event lasting up to several days in which a large number of people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming. In addition to software design, hardware programming and physical objects are sometimes incorporated into solutions. This definition now seems to be expanding, with the term being used to describe events that venture outside the realm of computer programming, but still require collective ideation and participation to generate ideas and solutions, such as the Vanfutures Hackathon that recently took place in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
