Hackathons are a learn-by-doing competitive event that gives developers a chance to build innovative applications, usually based on a theme or challenge presented at the hackathon. Participants are encouraged to use IBM Bluemix for their hackathon applications so that they can build, extend, and scale their applications quickly and efficiently. Bluemix has an open architecture built on Cloud Foundry, and ensures extensive integration opportunities with other cloud and on-premise services.
