With special guest Philipp Busch.

I met Philipp at the Gamification World Congress in Barcelona recently and saw his presentation on the topic.

In today's episode we'll be discussing: The Hackathon "Gamification for Social Good" in Ethiopia - Building a gamified App in 4 days

The direction of our show is a little different than usual because today we’re going to explore and hear first-hand how to organize and carry out a Hackathon.

  1. What is a Hackathon?
  2. An overview about how to manage the process - how was it structured?
  3. How do you choose the right participants?
  4. How do you keep the participants motivated?
  5. Did you use Gamification in the Hackathon?
  6. How can you manage to push some results in just 4 days?
  7. What is the task of the Teamkeeper or Facilitator?
  8. What are the benefits for the participants?
  9. How can Gamification help to solve real-world-problems?
