After months of planning, we hosted our first ever company-wide Hackathon. The Hackathon named, Snotty Ron’s Bakeoff, was a way for everyone on the No-IP team to step away from their day-to-day responsibilities and get creative. Everyone across the company was encouraged to come up with ideas for a project they would like to work on. Teams were then formed and ideas were brought to life. At the beginning of the month, we kicked off Snotty Ron’s Bakeoff and teams frantically went to work.
Projects ranged from super technical, dev heavy projects, to remodeling a breakout office into a themed office to help cater to how different people work.
For 3 days straight, the teams worked together to turn their ideas into a demo-able product. The teams consisted of people from many different roles across the company; from product managers to analysts to creatives and devs, all of the teams worked together to create a cool project.
On the last day, we held the Snotty Ron’s Bakeoff Award Ceremony. Winners of the first Annual Quarterly Hackathon were awarded a coveted Snotty Ron bobble head.
This event was a huge success and we can’t wait to do it again next quarter. Not sure who Snotty Ron is? Take a moment to meet him.
