Yesterday I found some notes written the past year about a personal retrospective after the participation to my first remote hackathon.
I want to share with you some hints I learned:
There are a lot of tools to organize and manage the work of a remote team without too much pains.
Well, but I think everybody learned it in these strange time.
Use every library, framework or everything else you know to prototype the result in a quick way. In this context: "the idea is better than the solidity of the solution".
Invest some time implementing a base build and deploy workflow will have great ROI in the last part of event.
Invest more time into the initial brainstorming and then plan some global checkpoints to fix the idea.
Do few quick video chat and maintain an active textual chat to align in real time the team about the progress of single tasks.
Simplify, simplify and simplify.
Be available and pro-active.
Work to unblock the work of other members of the team.
