The Incredible Machine – Automate everything…

Grunt, SaaS, Less, node.js,, vagrant, docker, graphite, kibana, web, native, chrome, iOS, jenkins, git, yeoman …have we missed something?

Als traditionellen Sevenval Hackathon haben wir #Thewoodhack zwischen Berlin und Köln im beschaulichen Duderstadt organisiert. Entgegen aller Sorgen hat die Internetanbindung gut funktioniert, erst Samstagnachmittag hat die Drosselkom der Unterkunft den Hahn abgedreht. Dank LTE konnten wir uns aber wieder mit der digitalen Welt verbinden.

Mit der Automatisierung und Verkettung von Prozessen haben wir gut zwei Tage mit 30 Leuten geilen Krams (Dinge, die man schon lange machen will, aber der berühmte verregnete Samstagnachmittag einfach nicht kommen will) gebaut, von der automatischen Buildumgebung im Docker über  Blamebots für faule Kollegen die sich nicht an Coding Guidelines halten bis hin zum Company Quizduell um das übliche “Company Sprech” zu lernen (automatisiertes Lernen beim Spielen – schlau, wa’?).

Zwischen Grillen und Bier trinken haben wir zwölf Ideen hochgezogen…

… viele der Ideen werden wir weiter ausarbeiten und in unsere tägliche Arbeit integrieren. Am Ende ist es doch immer wieder faszinierend, wie produktiv man ohne Meetings, Kunden, Mails und Daily Business ist :)


Sebastian: “Bei unserem internen Hackathon lerne ich mehr, als auf vielen Konferenzen. Es ist beeindruckend was die unterschiedlichen Kollegen für ein Know-how haben”.


Jan: “Gerade bei zwei Standorten ist es total toll mit den Kollegen mal ohne Projektstress zu arbeiten.”

Martin (Human Ressources Manager): “Der Sevenval Hackathon ist ein fester Teil in unserem Schulungskonzept. Der Austausch zwischen den Standorten, Teams und Fachbereichen vereint die Faszination Informatik”


Walter: “Endlich kann ich beim Kickern den Berlinern zeigen, warum der FC in die 1. Liga gehört”.

Die Planung für unseren nächsten Hackathon läuft gerade an.
Wir freuen uns, wenn Du dabei bist:
