I spent a weekend mentoring a group of teenagers who were experiencing their first hackathon. It's safe to say it was a steep learning curve for all of us! Here I am sharing some of the key learnings I took away from the experience.
Going to your first hackathon is a bit nerve-wracking. It was for me at least. I had absolutely no idea what to expect. It was an awesome experience, one I hope to repeat soon, but next time I want to be able to use what I learnt to help me get the most out of the next opportunity that comes my way.
