This session will help attendees understand hackathons and code sprints, and how to use them effectively. We will run the session as an unconference. In an unconference, we build new solutions or adapt existing ones to solve real-world challenges while we grow peer-to-peer relationships. Unconferences use Open Space Technology to facilitate a completely participant-driven work session that leverages all the skills in the room.
Join this session if you are completely new to agile development/Scrum/code sprints/hackathons, or if you have heaps of experience to share, or if you are anywhere in between! We will use the unconference format to set up and practice some methods of co-design and agile development. The session will be entirely participatory.
Attendees will adopt the role of facilitators and share best practices while discussing topics posed by the session attendees themselves. You’ll leave ready to implement these techniques for development and decision making back home and in the field. Yeah!
