In May, Nik Kalyani traveled to the Orlando DotNetNuke User Group to present the first DotNetNuke Hackathon event. The Orlando Hackathon was very well attended and focused on teaching developers about the new MVP design pattern and the WebformsMVP framework that was included in DotNetNuke 5.3.
What is a Hackathon?
A Hackathon is a developer event that occurs over a short period of time. Hackathons are informal events aimed at teaching developers some new technology which the developers then use in the development of a new project. Because of the immersive nature of the events, developers are able to get a good jumpstart on using some new technology or development technique. These events are designed to encourage participation by people who may not be familiar with a particular technology or concept.
