Hackathon

Definition: An organized event where experts, designers, or researchers collaborate for a relatively short amount of time to work intensively on a project or problem. The term is originally borrowed from computer programmer and software development events whose goal is to create a fully fledged product (resources, research, software, hardware) by the end of the event, which can last several hours to several days.
