Hackathon in pandemic 2020 !!!! My experience! Hackathon Company GmbH presentation good, execution bad!

 Hi folks today i will write a short story of my experience during 

Hackdays Baden-Württemberg 

The Hackathon Company GmbH which is event organizer of this hackathon did good advertisement and i thought well i always like to participate at Hackathons and learn new stuff, lets try it!
The registration was without a problem, pretty simple!

What was this time different?

Well this time is full online experience, but 

1. Nobody of the participants was allowed to change and switch to another challenger.
2. Nobody was allowed to decide slowly with which team you think to participate at hackathon.
3. I was forced to cancel my participation at this event by Rayna Topalska Project Management  staff employee of The Hackathon Company GmbH.

She repeatedly through the Slack communication chat stated that i violated the rules , but i was pretty busy speaking to my clients via telephone (very important calls) and couldn't answer fast enough !

Hey the Hackathon Company GmbH ,

this is not democratic and not even welcoming experience, i don't liked to be pushed around and set in very unpleasant situation and you should take it as lesson learned! 

I even said it to  Kira Biernat Content Marketing Intern from the beginning of this event, so that i need to asset the "Challange" first before i decide and consider to participate in the challenge.

So what i learned about this Hackathon?

Ask the hachkathon organizers before actual hackathon starts,
maybe they are not experienced or even unprofessional and don't facilitate good experience for your as hackathon participant.


Hackathon Company GmbH succeed at the presentation , but didn't succeed in execution of this event!

I can recommend Hackathon Company GmbH following:

  • 1. Be open!
  • 2. Be friendly!
  • 3. Don't force people to take quick decision!
  • 4. Respect that people different and every way you can only think!
  • 5. Understand is someone not motivated , he or she has good reasons for that!
  • 6. Hackathon should not be handled as project at job, it should be fun and relax experience!
