The Hackathon is a fun-filled event that allows ADTRAN employees to stretch their creative muscles by spending some time working on innovative, or exciting projects of choice outside of their normal day-to-day activities with a healthy dose of competition to keep things interesting. Over the course 24 hours, during the Hackathon, or two days, during the Hackathon XL, participating teams compete to see what code, device, or technology they can hack together in the hopes of becoming the next victor!
By completing specific tasks, such as finishing their projects on time, participating in three consecutive Hackathons, winning the Hackathon to become victor, or even just by being left handed, Hackathon participants can earn points, badges, and level up the ranks from Hacking Noob to Hacking Neophyte all the way up to Hacking Wizard.
It is a sandbox for experimentation and exploration. The sky's the limit.
