Before we was off to celebrate christmas the annual Christmas Hackathon took place. The time of year where the development department release all it’s creativity and create some amazing things that hopefully will make their way into our product suite.

With 13 great teams and more than 15 ideas presented at the final I can assure you that this was the best hackathon so far!

Some of the great ideas and prototypes

  • An interactive map for our office to keep track of where all the co-workers have their current desktop.
  • A gamification of our software for educational purposes.
  • Guides and tooltips for the user embedded in our software.
  • Possibility to use RFID to track the time at the office.

We always have a great time doing these things and will do more of it this year. I personally would like us to host a competition like Code in the Dark, maybe that could be a goal for 2015 – we’ll see!

2015 is packed with features we’re developing and a lot of things to do, things possible only because we always have a really great time together!

Here is a small recap of the hackathon, enjoy!
