Hackatons have become a part of modern enterprise. This is why.
If you don't know already, hackathons are programming events that last from 24 hours to one week either in the indoor or online format . The purpose of a hackathon is a for a group of programmers to work together on a collaborative project. Most hackathons are competitions where several teams are competing to create prototypes that innovate on a theme or improve upon an existing project. A hackathon has plenty of benefits, which I plan to discuss below.

You must work with people from various fields, with multiple interests and skills, all collaborating to solve the same problem. The fact that there are time constraints make the task more exciting and brings out the best in people.
