Ha­cka­thon in Weikersheim

The TecAlliance Ha­cka­thon took place for the first time in Wei­kers­heim from 21 to 22 September.

The aim of this ye­ar’s Ha­cka­thon was to crea­te crea­ti­ve, en­ter­tai­ning or use­ful (soft­ware) pro­ducts wi­t­hin 24 hours or to find so­lu­ti­ons for gi­ven problems.

Howe­ver, this was not a pure IT event, sin­ce a ha­cka­thon is an in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ry event. Among many sug­ges­ti­ons also social and joint pro­jects for the TecAlliance were pre­sen­ted, which have al­rea­dy been set in mo­ti­on in the meantime.

Col­leagues from the in­for­ma­ti­on ma­nage­ment and de­ve­lo­p­ment de­part­ments have been sup­por­ting each other. This pro­vi­ded a good in­sight into the crea­ti­ve work of others.

Of cour­se, the fun should not be ne­glec­ted. The­re­fo­re the ta­ble soc­cer and a game con­so­le were avail­ab­le for the breaks in or­der to crea­te some en­ter­tain­ment and ba­lan­ce bet­ween the work pha­ses. Which was a very suc­cess­ful con­cept. Un­til late in the evening, the teams worked and tin­ke­red through to la­ter kick a few laps tog­e­ther or over­ta­ke each other in ra­cing ga­mes, and then con­ti­nue to work with a fresh head un­til late into the night.

The next morning pro­jects like the fol­lowing were presented:

  • TecAlliance Goes Sport” – A vol­un­ta­ry in­itia­ti­ve to make more sports­manship and ex­er­cise pos­si­ble for TA employees.
  • TecAlliance is com­mit­ted to social cau­ses” – A con­cre­te social pro­ject that is al­rea­dy being car­ri­ed out by the trai­nees in November.
  • Block­chain for TA” – How to set up a block­chain? How could TA be­ne­fit from this tech­no­lo­gy in the future?

In ad­di­ti­on the­re were a num­ber of other pro­jects to fur­ther im­pro­ve our products.

Gre­at team­work, di­li­gence, fun at work and a won­der­ful­ly re­la­xed at­mo­s­phe­re made the Ha­cka­thon an ex­cel­lent event, which will be re­peated in any case.

Many thanks to all par­ti­ci­pants and sup­por­ters of the TecAlliance Ha­cka­thon 2018.
