After 12 months of design and product management event organization, I wanted to see something practical and fun. That is why I organized the Design Hackathon with the help of amazing partners, judges and participants.
49 teams submitted their design solutions for 14 challenges
Each team got access to challenges 1 day before the hackathon starts at Optoro's office. The main teamwork happened between 10 am and 4pm (6 hours).
Due to security limitations, we were limited to host only 140 people inside the office. 10 teams had to participate remotely with 1 representative on sight.
2 months prior to the event we thought to host 100 people in 8 hours. But 200 registered participants forced us to be agile and organize the event under any kind of limitations.
I hope that at the next event we could fit 200+ people for 8+ hours.
If you know such a place please contact me.
The next design hackathon in DC should happen in 2020.
If you know a company that might be interested to be a partner/sponsor in the future great creative professional contest please connect me with them.
