The Hacky Days #2 took place from November 6 to 8. During this second edition, a hundred participants, mainly from the R&D, Experts network and SDCO, gathered in 3 locations simultaneously: Lyon, Blois and Seclin.
The purpose of this second hackathon was to experiment and propose solutions to the problem of collaborative work in distributed teams in Worldline.
The participants, who had the opportunity to work with colleagues they do not usually meet, were able to propose 9 different projects and present concrete achievements to other teams as well as too many guests.
These days reinforce the links between colleagues and open the spirit to other ways of working, other locations, other teams, to improve the efficiency in an unusual mode, playful and relaxed.
“The rich exchanges during these 3 days of collaboration allowed us to create an interesting project and to create a strong link between people who are geographically distant. This type of project allows beyond the subject to better know the assets of each and put them to advantage in a more playful way.”
– Manon Pelletier, participant and lead of a subject at Hacky Days 2
The HackyDays#2 were made possible with the support of the HR France, R&D, Expert Network and Well being@Worldline entities.
