Today’s guests on TLDChat were Scott Cooper, VP of Marketing at GO1 and Angela Wong, Instructional Designer at LinkedIn. This dynamic duo produces the Bay Area Hackathon, an event where teams work through a particular topic and then present their product or solution to a panel of industry leaders. Topics are selected based on issues that impact all different areas of learning and development: Human Resources, Administration, IT, etc. Scott and Angela also shared that participants aren’t always seasoned learning and development professionals, often there are participants new to the industry. Have you ever been a part of a Hackathon? What do you think would be a good topic for a learning and development hackathon? Leave your comments below or reach out to us on social media at TLDChat
