*Our plan of questions and topics for the workshop.*
- How do you decide what hackathon to join?
- Ask every participant to **share an event** they are planning to go to and/or have been at.
- Bring a stack of Green and Red Post-Its for people to suggest "attractors" and "detractors", that we'll use in the **Flowchart** later on.
- Let's define our scope
- "subject" -> **[hackathon](https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/hackathon)**
- (informal, neologism) An event where programmers and others meet for collaborative software development.
- "predicate" -> **[exploitation](https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/exploitation)**
- Borrowed from French exploitation, from exploiter (“exploit”), from Latin explicō (“unfold, deploy”).
- "object" -> **[precarization](https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/precarization)**
- (sociology) a condition of existence without predictability or security, affecting material or psychological welfare.
- Share relevant projects
- **Online platforms**
- See [Mechanism for hackathon discoverability](https://github.com/loleg/dribdat/issues/112) in [DRIBDAT](https://github.com/loleg/dribdat/blob/master/ABOUT.md) (see [Whitepaper](https://github.com/hackathons-ftw/design/blob/master/Dribdat_Whitepaper_EN.pdf)) and [MakeZurich repo](https://github.com/make-zurich) (2018)
- **Research projects**
- [Hackathon as a Method: Social Innovation and Inclusion in the Social Sector](https://hackmd.io/s/HJPhKLz5M) (2019)
- **Reading club**
- We will print copies of a card with the link to our [literature list](https://hackmd.io/s/S1_nyDIff), in the style of the [Make badge](http://make.opendata.ch/wiki/user:home).
- Lens / perspectives
- **Role of the challenger**
- Alignment of the expectations is critical between the organizing team and the challengers/experts/sponsors who take a initiating or guiding or managing role.
- A recurrent source of friction is challengers who miss the point or are underwhelmed with the hackathon.
- **Role of the participant**
- Finding people you can work with is generally hard, the hackathon is team building on jet fuel.
- Matching everyone's [expectations](https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9553674) is hard, and guidelines can help.
- We do not have many established tools and techniques for being effective during a hackathon.
- **Role of the infrastructure**
- What tools help us to make sure we build confidence in hackathons.
- From pomodoro techniques, to build boxes, to data resources, to network and computing infrastructure, to environmental design.
- Next steps
- **Join the Hacknight, or another hackathon**
- ...start your own!
- **Help make a Flowchart**
- In a playful way our discussion should help to together define the criteria that will enable the discoverability thinking that will be part of Dribdat, etc.
- As the "take home" part of the workshop, each participant who leaves us their postal address will get a nicely printed poster first edition, and possibly chocolate `;-)`
