Get a room, throw in a bunch of Magento developers to code on various assignments, and magic is going to happen
There are various ways a developer is able to learn: Being taught, reading books, watching videos ... and by doing it. Of course you can do so with collegues of the same agency. But then you'll be missing out the fresh ideas that others might be bringing in. A multi-agency hackathon is the right answer.

Magento is still superior to other carts and worthwhile diving into. While you can always get started with the basics by attending an academy or learning online, to really learn how to work on more complex features, practice is needed. This is where a hackathon jumps in. A single day with fellow developers to work on things that are eating your mind.

What to work on this day? It could be a PR into Magento Open Source, or collaborating on a Mage-OS feature. It could be a module that you always wanted to work upon, an itch, a bug. Let's decide together how to turn this day into a success. And a little suggestion: Work together with others, instead of your own - pair programming is way cool to learn new stuff.
Let's discuss on the Mage-OS Discord (channel
#mage-os-nl) what topics would be interesting to you!
