How can we ensure the success of a Hackathon? The success of any hackathons are heavily dependent on the preparation of the Customer. Any requirements, data access, and queries to source systems should be prepared prior to the start of the engagement. Any technical requirements for development work should be intentionally planned small to give the best opportunity to complete during the engagement.
Will the end solution be production ready? Any example solutions developed during the Hackathon should be considered a proof of concept (POC) and not “production ready” at the end of the training engagement.
How many people can we have in the Hackathon? There is a limit of 10 attendees per session to ensure each participant is able to fully reach their potential and receive appropriate individual attention.
What types of technologies would be ideal for a Hackathon? Power Apps, Power BI, Azure Data Services, SQL Server, SSRS, SSIS, SSAS, and Power Automate
How long is a Hackathon? 1 day (can scope additional days depending on size of customer use case)
