Earlier this year, John Wetenhall, Head of Strategy & Operations Manager visited us here in Wiesbaden, immediately after Atlassian Summit Europe ended.

A lot of business communication is still “off-the-record”. That has dramatic downsides in lack of transparency, reduced options to synchronize and communicate, and less common ground for decisions. This blog post wants to encourage you to reduce “off-the-record business communication”. It’s about your bottom line.
The aim of a Hackathon is to put yourself under time pressure, and intensively work for this short period of time to develop and deliver a product, or complete a small project. With the encouragement of our developers, it has become an integral part of our agile organization.
