Hackathon fun and games!

Hackathon fun and games!

The GuideSmiths Hungarian team hosted their bi-annual hackathon and BBQ in September 2017.

Five development teams were challenged to use the latest technologies to build a fully functioning game within eight hours and present to a panel consisting of our senior team and clients. The teams had to build one of: Snakes & Ladders, Ludo or Nine Men's Morris.

The judging panel included representatives from our clients Hive & TES Global and members of our senior team. With a cash prize for the winners, the teams had to present in English and justify use of their chosen technologies. With the office packed to the rafters, it was a very close contest with a brilliant version of snakes & ladders edging out the other four teams. The day was wrapped up with a delicious hog roast cooked on site and the team are already looking forward to the next hackathon in 2018.
