What is a Hackathon?

Wikipedia: A hackathon is a design sprint-like event; often, in which computer programmers and others involved in software development, including graphic designers, interface designers, project managers, domain experts, and others collaborate intensively on software projects.
Why are we doing this?
Hack-bang was formed with the idea that there are people out there, whose brilliant ideas are just waiting for the right spark to create lasting impact.
Now that the world is rapidly changing accelerated by the effects of Covid-19 in all life aspects, we must pool in all ideas on how to make life work for the better, share them with peers, develop it with mentors as guides, and then present it to policymakers, investors, incubators, and collectively co-create workable products or projects for the common good.
