Our First Hackathon

Axant codes for food
Axant codes for food

We are coders, and we love to code. Our job is coding, and we have fun to.

Hence we decided to have fun, just by having a 24h non-stop coding experiment in our preferred and beloved Italian restaurant (well actually a taverna)!

We will have a mini-hackathon tomorrow at 3pm our time, to celebrate together the past 2011 working year, that was great! Free Food, free alcohol and a couple of cots is our necessaire for brainstorm and actuate our plan to take over the world!

Actually this “coding marathon” it has a subject, all the projects and ideas that will be developed should be related to “Food / Dining”!

The products result of the day, if useful, will be developed on field and used by a restaurant and a couple of bars, free of charge. Hence if there are good result could be a first step for a new free-software project.

In fact probably tomorrow we’ll not have just software projects cause the team is heterogeneous, built of lawyers, designers, creative people, musicians… and obviously coders!

The plan includes a couple of hours to study the problematics of a restaurant and in particular of our host. The owner will illustrate to us his business processes and we will try to understand were we could help them with our notions.

The next step is to actuate the thoughts into reality in the next 20hrs (: that’s it, nothing easier huh?

In the next post I’ll update the outcomes and the people behind it!
