Hackweekend is a collaborative initiative by a group of passionate individuals from the local technology community. Initiated in 2011, Hackweekend is Malaysia’s first hackathon series. The event is supported by a variety of technology companies including Microsoft, Experian, Techmaki, and Wakalab who believe the spirit of promoting software development.
Teams — Participants meet beforehand at a Spark Session to form collaborative teams and discuss their ideas. This will ensure that they are well prepared to code their ideas into reality.
Focus — The upcoming Hackweekend is focused on Getting Things Done. We all have New Year’s resolutions, we all have things we want to change in our lives, but making that change happen can be difficult. We’re looking to explore new ways to create behaviour change through Hackweekend.
Choice — No restrictions are placed on choice of tech, language, or platform.
One Rule — There is however one rule to Hackweekend: No PowerPoint Presentations! Each team is expected to demo a real, working application in some form or fashion as the result of their toil and effort to peers and heads of industry for fame and awesomeness!
