The ShipIt Days, the in-house hackathon, took place at Scandio for the fifth time last week. As a result, regular work was put aside on Thursday afternoon and the next 24 hours were themed as “creative and innovative projects”. These might well have to do with software or hardware development, but there were also some groups that wanted to prove themselves with art. Friday afternoon ended the work on the projects and each team had five minutes to present their results. At the end, the individual winners in the categories “Innovation”, “Competence”, “Benefit” and “Presentation” and an overall winner were selected and awarded through a point system.
Winner in the category: Competence
Who Can Do It? from Georg
“Who Can Do It?” is a simple but powerful application for task distribution in Confluence. Add tasks to a list for which you lack the know-how, for which there is no time or for which you need help. Persons can be proposed for the respective task. These users can respond by accepting, rejecting or offering help. Each task has a deadline and the group of proposed persons is reminded to respond within this deadline.
JamblePi from Felix K., Christoph and Marius
“Get in touch with your buddies in the Office”: This requires a Raspberry Pi, a Jabra and a Mumble server. When switched on, the Pi automatically connects to a room on the Mumble server, switching an office “online” whose users can talk via loudspeakers. Perfect for employees in the home office.
