Should You Participate In a Hackathon as an Aspiring Developer?

I think a lot of aspiring developers eventually get the advice that they should participate in a hackathon to help them grow and even find a job. In this podcast episode, I invited on someone who has hosted several hackathons. He shared all of the ins and outs of different types of hackathons. He even shared what to look for and what to look out for depending on your current skill level and goals. If you've ever considered participating in a hackathon, but have been hesitant about it, this episode is for you.
