Why a Hackathon?
Not just for programmers or coders, hackathons bring together smart people with lots of different expertise to tackle a big issue with intensity, energy and enthusiasm in a condensed period of time. We’ll use Design Thinking, a user-centric design process pioneered by Stanford’s d.school to infuse some genuine creativity. The participants will work in teams and use their expertise and creativity to generate new solutions for an online orphan works licensing portal.
