A hackathon: what is it?

We talk to you about hackathon, but what is it exactly? A hackathon is the mixture of two words: hackers and marathon.

First, we have the Hackers.

First, we have the Hackers. They are hackers as we like to call them. Indeed, when we talk about hackers, it’s rarely with a good image. Yet in games they are nice hackers: they will use their skills for a good cause. Hackers in companies, for example, identify flaws and try to find solutions quickly. They are lively, clever and proactive people, for whom problem solving is a source of motivation.

Second, we have the word marathon.

You necessarily know this Olympic discipline since 1896, born of the Greek Empire and the famous Philippides who traveled 42 kilometers to Athens to deliver a message, that of the victory of a battle against the Persians. Arrived exhausted, he would have died just after… sad end. However, he gave birth to the word marathon where effort management is central. Hackers (problem solving) + Marathon (effort management) = HACKATHON

The Ready Developer One will be held from May 13 to 15, 2022 at the Laval Virtual Center, stronghold of virtual reality in France.

44 hours: The Ready Developer One consists of a 44-hour game jam or hackathon during which you will have to develop the best game (HoloLens, VR headset, XBox, Smartphone, etc.) on a theme defined jointly by the ETR teams, Laval Virtual and Microsoft. Teamwork: This hackathon is done in teams of 3 to 5. Whether you are professionals or amateurs, you are all expected in the arena! Microsoft Azure: A technical introduction to Playfab will be offered to you before the challenge and will be part of the prerequisites for this event

A great way to prototype a game on HoloLens, VR Headset, XBox, Smartphone…
