Resource: Hackathons: the How To Guide from Open Knowledge Foundation

The guide is meant to describe not only how to run a hackathon but why we run them the way we do. Our intention is that our participants walk away from our events inspired and with a new understanding of what open data is and how it can be used to inform, and add value. Our intention with the guide is that other people will take on running their own hackathons and create that same result in their own communities.
