What is a hackathon? Read on to find out.
Hackathons (from a combination of words "hacker" and "marathon") are gaining popularity nowadays. This is a space where teams made of representatives of various sectors, from developers to marketing specialists, designers and niche specialists, gather.

Generally, a hackathon has a theme, which can be finance, climate, gaming, etc. Any hackathon's goal is to solve some practical problems in the respective field. Interestingly, today hackathons are held not only to find solutions through programming and software engineering (hence the word "hacker" in the name) but also for offline projects.

A distinctive feature of a hackathon is that the people who barely know each other work together, on a tight schedule, to solve the ideas that seem impossible at times, and in just a couple of days they come up with a solution and work out an implementation plan.

The mission of the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad, and International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo) as part of the federal project Personnel for Digital Economy in line with the nationwide programme Digital Economy of the Russian Federation is to secure, through its events and initiatives, Russia's geopolitical interests by promoting cultural exchange, education and new technologies, as well as to build stronger relations and cooperation worldwide by preserving the highest level of professionalism, efficiency and sustainable development.
