Codemotion is one of the leaders in organizing Hackathons.

A hackathon is a coding marathon in which participants, divided into teams, challenge to give life to an innovative idea in a very short time, with defined themes and technologies.

Why do companies organize Hackathons?

  1. Branding: the original and explosive format has a high communicative value
  2. Creation of innovation: inviting developers to solve serious technical challenges can open enterprises up to new ways of doing things.  
  3. Social responsibility
  4. Recruiting

However, we cannot forget that hackathons are not only good for business and the whole tech community. The most important thing is that they really make Geeks happy!

Codemotion was the first  in Italy to organize open innovation projects such as hackathons. Over the last 3 years, more than 35 hackathons have been organized for promoters such as Sky, Chamber of Deputies, Agid, Tim, State Railways also Eni,The FS Italiane Group, ATAC, Public Transport (Agenzia della Mobilità), IBM, TomTom Telematics, Italian Postal Services (Poste Italiane, Arduino), Facebook, Tim/Telecom and Taxi 3570.
