NewRelic blog: How to hold a great hackathon

Just like getting the most out of participating in a hackathon, deriving maximum value from holding a hackathon takes careful preparation and advanced planning, especially about what you hope to gain from the event. But planning and implementing a successful hackathon may be harder than actually winning one.

I have attended plenty of hackathons as an observer and mentor, but I’ve never actually run one myself. So I spoke to people who have–including New Relic’s own in-house expert–to gather some of their best practices and suggestions. You can read more for my blog post for New Relic here.
