Types of Hackathons
A hackathon is an event that brings together developers, hackers and engineers to work on a challenging problem or project. It can be used to help solve problems in an area such as renewable energy, transportation or healthcare. There are many different types of hackathons. Some are more hands-on than others. A water-based hackathon will use the water from a local river to fill a swimming pool while an air-based hackathon will use large fan stands to dry the water. Some events are more about team building than solving a problem. These are often referred to as social hackathons.
Contenders vs. Finalists
Contenders are the ones who come up with the ideas and produce the solutions during the hackathon. The team members working on the ideas are called entrants and the team members working on the solutions are called competitors or finalists. The idea for the competition is usually very fresh and original. Finalists are usually the ones who have been working on the idea for a while and have been practicing their solution creation.

Tips for becoming a finalist in a Hackathon
There are many things that you can do to try to become a finalist in a hackathon. Here are some tips that you might want to consider: Read the rules loud and clear - A lot of the fun of a hackathon is just being in the midst of developers solving problems. Don’t just assume that you know what is allowed and what is not! Keep it short and sweet - A hackathon is not a contest. You will not be judged on how many problems you can solve or how many solutions you can provide. All that will be important, though, is that you bring something to the table and that you are interested in sharing it with the world. Don’t be shy - You are not the only one who wants to join the team. Other members on the team may have ideas on how to solve the same problem you are dealing with. In fact, they might have been working on the same problem and came up with the same solution as you did.
