A hackathon is an event where developers, designers, entrepreneurs come together to pitch a technological solution to solve a problem. At the event, which typically lasts between 2 – 3 days, teams will work towards a prototype and a business plan.

The concept at MyHackathon organized by JPro, DPPM is essentially a 24 hour event where teams will focus towards building a solution (not necessarily technological) that solves problems in Malaysia ranging from the economy, affordable housing, education and healthcare.
