A truly cross-functional teamStups.io Development, Java Backend Development and Web Frontend Development. The team got together on Monday morning to kick-off with a brainstorming session. The purpose of our project was two-fold: 1) Automate the detection of dependencies between applications and visualize them in a convenient way. 2) Enable every employee to get better insights into the IT landscape. After a brief SCRUM-like planning session, small teams started hacking all day long during the week.
The big innovation fair"The refugee clothing app" that helps refugess find and access donated clothing. Also this time there were many projects with a lot of "out of the box" thinking, similar to the shoe launched into space during last Hack Week.
Turning innovation into reality
This week was a truly outstanding experience for all of us: Very quickly people from completely different backgrounds and even companies can team up, achieve so much during a short timeframe and have a lot of fun at the same time. We are convinced that Hack Week is an outstanding concept (Interview with orga team) to keep up and foster innovation spirit even if a company like Zalando has grown out of the typical Startup size. While we cannot reveal more details yet, we are excited to see the major part of the created features and integrations becoming generally available in leanIX and being used in production soon. Stay tuned :-)
