This late night sourcing event is guaranteed to be a major highlight of the conference. Part sourcing lab, part game show, part sourcing contest, and all for a great cause. Bring your sourcing arsenal and don’t forget your sourcing toolkit. The SourceCon Hackathon is where you want to strut your stuff. And if you need help, then this is also the place to go.

The SourceCon Hackathon commences with a learning session where you can exchange sourcing ideas with like-minded sourcers or bring your sourcing problems to a team of SourceCon experts to help you find the solutions. This part of the night is all about individual help and passing along cool sourcing tricks and tips that we can all learn from.

After an hour of the sourcing lab, we will move on to the SourceCon Hackathon contest. We will pick four teams with four sourcers on each team. The contest will be based around a real world sourcing challenge and can feature any sourcing method that you want to use. We will have a first round where two teams compete against each other while the other two do the same. The winners of both contests will then square off against each other for the ultimate bragging rights in our industry. The winning team will receive a VERY cool prize.

After the contest is over, we will demonstrate some of the great ideas that the teams came up with and display them to all attendees at the event. We will then finish up the SourceCon Hackathon with an additional sourcing lab that will last approximately thirty minutes.

This is a must attend event! There will be snacks and beverages and more importantly....power! Laptops are required, superhero costumes are optional.
