We like to seek your interest level in an idea for our next programming hackathon. One of the most interesting concepts in the area of innovation and prototyping is Design Thinking.
In order to add more value to our hackathon and also enhance the quality of the event we are considering some mentorship and coaching opportunity on the subject during the hackathon.
The goal is to have a coach equip our hackers with the Design Thinking methodology. Such techniques will enable the participants to not only deliver better results at the hackathon but also take the knowledge back to their professional careers and become better PI professionals.
At the beginning of the hackathon we will include a presentation of 30-45 minutes to walk the participants through the process of design thinking and define the resources during the event. Throughout the event we will provide each team with a coach to consult with as well as certain level of access to the customer or someone who plays the role of a customer.
If we see a good amount of interest in the community we will take the next steps to include Design Thinking in our future hackathons!
