hack athon – 1

Host a Hackathon with Virtual Conference Manager!

One of the best ways to learn a new technology or improve your team’s collaboration is by participating in a hackathon!  

In a hackathon, everyone is divided into teams of 5-6 people each where they will work to complete challenges. Challenges can be guided by the topic, or they can be completely custom depending on your goals for your team.  

Virtual Conference Manager (VCM) makes it easy to deliver a hackathon leveraging the power of the Microsoft Cloud. VCM can provide access to Microsoft Azure, Dynamics, Power Platform, or any Microsoft 365 services to allow your team to build solutions on almost any topic.  

VCM provides an elegant attendee experience, where attendees attend a full virtual event experience, where hacking can be intermixed with other event experiences such as technical or business sessions, gamification such as trivia or speed networking.  

Accessing the lab environment and connecting to other team members is a simple click away from the schedule.  


All hacking teams need coaches to keep them on track to review their work and optionally approve challenges.  

With VCM it is simple for your coaches to see which virtual tables they are monitoring and jump right into the Team meeting to collaborate with their assigned hacker teams. 


At the end of the challenge, participants can earn badges for their work with VCM Acclaim integration. Badges can be issued from your organization or ours if you do not have Acclaim setup yet.
