24 hours. 12 teams. One goal: The dotSource Hackathon trophy. The second dotSource Hackathon »What the hack?« took place on 25th October in our head office in Jena. For the first time, not only dotSource employees, but also external students and teams with their motivation and their ideas were allowed to participate in this huge party of teamwork. Until late at night, hipsters, hackers and hustlers from all teams created and developed: from the conception to the technological and programmatic development through to the creation of the marketing and sales plan.
The resulting projects were as mixed as their members: whether it was the realisation of a pharmacy web shop, the creation of audible marketing contents, the development of an application for software selection or the creation of an internal platform for the training of new employees.
Furthermore, the first dotSource Fuck Up night took place in the evening, during which our experts reported on the biggest fails from the digital projects of our clients – because in reality, failing and making mistakes are also part of each good project. After 24 hours of hard work and lots of fun, the projects were presented. Afterwards, the voting and obviously an exciting award ceremony followed. And who won?
- 1st place: »dotSource Academy«
- 2nd place: »Source Code Rating Tool«
- 3rd place: »Heap Dump Analysis as a Service«
Once again congratulations to everyone! And thank you and kudos to ALL other participants of the second dotSource Hackathon for their team spirit, creativity and ambition! We had brilliant ideas, projects and presentations. And obviously an incredible night! We are looking forward to next year! #ichmagsdigital
