I’ve always been enthusiastic about hackathons, both as a participant and as an organizer. I believe hackathons are a great way to navigate new technology while promoting rapid prototyping and the ‘fail fast’ theory, wherein new ideas are deployed and tested quickly. I had already seen the benefits firsthand, both in university hackathons, and those hosted in past years by other organizations, including Jibestream. Over the course of 2019, the full range of Inpixon’s products had expanded and the team had grown significantly with the addition of mapping and video analytics technology to the existing indoor data and positioning hardware and software. A hackathon seemed like the perfect opportunity to bring our people and products together, and establish a culture of innovation in our new, larger organization.
