Hackathons: a Practical Guide Route Map

Share this Publication


Year: 2017

As both the public and private sector are challenged to keep up to date with the needs and wants of their user groups, there is an increased need for organisations to examine their methods for creating and delivering new products.

The library service has taken this challenge head on and hosted the Future Libraries Product Forge Hackathon to re-imagine its role and functions: working in different ways in order to be sustainable and relevant.

This route map is based on the learnings of the Future Libraries Product Forge and provides a step-by-step approach to designing and delivering your own hackathon.
