VSHN HackDay

vshn hackday

The VSHN HackDay is a two-days event for all VSHNeers to hack on cool stuff. It will be organized irregularly and usually takes part 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

Before the event takes part, 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 itself

Until we can meet in person again, the event takes place online. It will last for two days (usually Thursday and Friday) and includes socializing in the evening(s) for those who want.

Course of the event

At the beginning of the event
  1. Attendees will pitch their ideas which were collected beforehand in the forum.

  2. Groups of 2 or 3 VSHNeers will be formed and ideas will be picked by the groups. One idea per group and one group per idea.

During the event

Groups will 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 of the work done during the HackDay. Votes for the best outcome are collected and the group with the most votes wins a prize and glory and honor 🎉.
