Software solutions are fluid, meaning that you can innovate them continuously over time to include the current and future needs of your customers and the established trends in the market. The needs of your clients evolve, the market in general moves on and the technological advancements make new things possible each year.
By adding new innovative add-ons to existing solutions, you can give your clients the new features that they desire. The Yonder Hackathon is a great way to create software prototypes in a 48-hour timeframe. You can then take these prototypes to your customers to discuss and further specify.
Identifying your customers’ needs and prototyping them each year at the Yonder Hackathon is an effective and cost-efficient way to explore new features. It shows your target audience that you invest in the future.
How to get the most out of a Hackathon
The Hackathon takes place during a weekend, in a 48-hour time-frame. It is meant for new ideas, prototypes or architectural validations. Your customers let you know what they would like throughout the year. Gather these ideas and discuss them with your team (or contact if you are not a Yonder client yet.) Don’t wait until a week before the Hackathon; then all the preparations need to be cramped into the last moment. Your Yonder team or contact will also have ideas to satisfy your customers’ needs. So, discuss the ideas during the upcoming months, validate them with your clients. That way, you will get the most out of the Hackathon.
So mark your calendar: Yonder Hackaton 15 – 17 May 2020.
