A hackathon is an invention marathon. A hackathon is an 24 hour event, where various individuals come together as a group to create new, innovative software and hardware solutions collaboratively. The goal is for each group to have some functional software at the end of the event. The best performances, both overall for their innovative idea and in specific categories, are awarded prizes by a small panel of judges.

No, the hackathon should not be confused with illegal and unauthorized programming. Although the term “hacking” has previously been associated with gaining access to a computer system with malicious intent, “hacking” has started to transition into a positive term describing the actions of innovators who are creating prototypes of their ideas. Programmers have rallied around the term “hacking”, as a term to describe their love of learning and their efforts to build the future.
According to the Major League Hacking survey, 80% of students explored new technologies or services during their hackathon project experience, 93 percent learned something new that hadn't been covered in coursework, 69% percent gained new skills that they were able to use in classwork later on and 89% learned something new from fellow students during the event.
