Today is the first day of 2017 and I want to share one of the my brightest experiences of 2016 with you. Or to be precise I want to tell you a story about telling a story.
It all started with my current job and our great culture of innovation. Once in a quarter we organise internal hackathons where the main goal is to come up with a new disruptive idea for our product and develop the first prototype in one day. And of course pitch it to everyone. It’s a very nice opportunity to work on the projects you never have time for and collaborate with people from other teams. And of course have fun.
After a few internal hacks I realised that I want to experience a real hackathon where people code non-stop to deliver magic in 3 days. And it was the right moment. By lucky coincidence my colleague was going to a Hackathon in Stuttgart and invited me to join him.
