Hackathons are developer events with a goal of increasing developer knowledge on a specific technology aspect in a casual, collaborative environment. They are also designed to encourage participation by people who are not necessarily familiar with the technology, basically providing them with an immersive quick start.

- encourage participation locally (at event site) and remotely
- broadcast online
- provide materials and dev environment setup guidelines ahead of time
- allow anybody to participate
- are peer-judged by the Hackathon participants
- have one or more winners who earn the title "Hackmaster"
- have great prizes for winners and runners up
- require all submissions to be Open Source with MIT license
- require all submissions to be hosted in the DotNetNuke Forge (Create a Forge Project)
Events occur every few months in conjunction with a locally sponsored User Group meeting.
