The VSHN HackDay is a two-day event for all VSHNeers to hack on cool stuff. It will be organized irregularly and usually takes place on a Thursday and Friday. The event is open to all VSHNeers who are interested to break out of the daily business and work on cool and fun stuff.
This doesn’t only apply to technical work, that could also be to work on processes / things which someone wanted to do for a long time. Or even make part of the VSHN office a little bit better or different.
Before the event takes place, ideas are collect in our Forum. Every VSHNeer can post ideas there which could attract other VSHNeers to take part and discuss the idea. Ideas should have to do something with VSHN, in any form.
|Please only one idea per topic. Just open a new topic for new ideas.|
A registration for the event is needed so that we know who takes part and we can organize accordingly. Please check with your team for work planning in scheduling in advance.
Daily business has to be kept up, for the most important services (operations, on-call). Teams have to plan for that in advance. Unfortunately that could mean that not every VSHNeer is able to participate in the HackDay (no worries, there will be a next event).
The event takes place fully online in Mibo, fully offline or in hybrid mode, depending on the current situation of the pandemic. The information in which mode it will take place and the link will be shared beforehand via email to all participants. It will last for two days (usually Thursday and Friday).
Odoo attendance for these days can be logged with at most 8 hours.
To have Lunch together a voucher for eat.ch will be handed out to all participants.
- A few days before the event
Pick an idea you’re interested in from the Forum. If there is no idea yet in which you’re interested to work on, you’re free to propose a new idea or ask around. Add the idea (if it isn’t there yet) and your name to the table in the wiki (link to be sent in the attendee info email). This way groups can be formed already before the event.
- At the beginning of the event
We’ll meet at 10:00 in Mibo to start the event with an introduction and a run-through of the event.
- During the event
Groups organize themselves to work on the ideas. Socializing / Znoomis with other groups can happen all the time, however they fit.
- Conclusion of the event
On the second day of the event at 16:00 all groups come together and each group presents the outcome (max. 5 minutes) of the work done during the HackDay. Votes are done with Mentimeter once all presentations are done. Each participant has one vote. The idea / group with the most votes wins a prize (CHF 500.00 per group to spend in Swibeco) and glory and honor 🎉.
