What is the best time to organize a hackathon?

This will depend on where you are located. However, regardless of your city, hackathons are typically fewer during summer months, Low season is usually defined as November through March. Shoulder season is April through mid-June and September through October. High season is mid-June through August.

If you are in the US or Europe, September–November and then January–April are the hottest months for conducting successful hackathons. Daywise, Saturday–Sunday are the best combination of days.

If your event will have a lot of workshops and keynotes, you might consider starting on a Friday after lunch.

  • The AADHAAR hackathon we conducted on HackerEarth delivered unprecedented engagement from a broad cross section of the developer community. HackerEarth provided a seamless platform to not only manage this massive hackathon, but also generate pre-hackathon engagement.
  • HackerEarth is an excellent platform to connect with quality talent. Over 4500 developers participated in GoIbibo GoCode Hackathon and the apps built were top-quality, and enabled us to have fruitful, interesting discussions with top-class developers.
  • HackerEarth Sprint is a fantastic tool for hackathon organizers. It seriously streamlines many event logistics and is much more functional than similar solutions. HackerEarth Sprint seriously helped reduce the amount of complexity in running our event. It took all of the functionality we needed, and bundled it into an easy to use solution.
