Discover the ideas and projects of this year's Hackathon and get to know the innovative minds behind it
We all know and love the amazing story of Jurassic Park. The experience at the park, though, had some weak spots – like that part when the dinosaurs escaped. Surely we can do better than this?
A day to innovate, create, experiment and team without limits: The first Merkle DACH Hackathon brought together curious minds from across 16 locations of Merkle DACH. With coaching sessions from Merkle experts on topics such as pitching or design thinking, the participants were empowered to put their skills and knowledge to the test. The goal: Inspire each other and build solutions to a Jurassic challenge that would even make Samuel L. Jackson sweat.
The beauty of technology is that you can test new things by failing. Fail fast, fail forward. From “Hello world”, all the way to the complex algorithms, our Hackathon event is about bringing our global teams closer to each other. As a mix of collaboration and friendly competition, we learn from each other, have fun and trust each other. Our Hackathon is a celebration of people having fun, teams coming together, and ideas taking shape.
The Merkle DACH Hackathon brought together brilliant minds with a passion for innovation. The Hackathon is more than an event - it´s a mindset and step forward towards innovation. I absolutely loved the spirit and the possibility to experiment with new challenges, play with ideas and work together with colleagues that live the infinite mindset.
I absolutely love putting together these hackathons - bringing together all of your colleagues to celebrate our expertise and creativity is what brings a smile to our face time and time again. There is nothing more enjoyable than being part of an initiative that joins all of our locations, divisions and values into one.
