A suggestion or plan for doing something, an understanding, thought, or picture in your mind.
Want to find a way to flesh out an idea, or to systematically generate new and potentially viable ideas? Take a look at the video below.
Who will choose the teams?
You will. That is, it’s up to you to decide who you want to work with. We’ll help you make that decision (in a fun and fair way), and if your ideas change and develop as you interact with each other and the outside world, so much the better!
What form can our project take?
Your project could be an app, or a website, or an online space or even a tangible product. It could be… anything!
We’ll help you refine, test and progress your ideas, as a team, in the time you have, with the skills and resources available to you. And you’re free to “get out of the building,” whether that’s going and talking to people in Ipswich to test your ideas or ask about their experiences, or reaching out online.
The “hackathon” style is very familiar to many in the software world, but at its core is a philosophy that says, let’s move from interesting ideas to sketches and prototypes, and let’s test our work by engaging with other people. We think that most teams will decide to use tools such as websites to showcase their ideas, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t win unless your team includes designers and coding experts. And mentors are on hand to help at every stage, so that you can bring your ideas to life
