Events are just as varied as companies – from 15 minute weekly du jour fixes through to events that run over several days. Easy Events for Confluence now supports long events, those that run over multiple days.
The larger a company is, the more events, meetings and appointments are scheduled. Event overviews can quickly become confusing when a large number of events are held on one day. Easy Events 1.6 offers a solution for Confluence in this updated version.
Integrate Events in Confluence more smoothly with the Easy Events Plugin. Sven Heß, who was involved in developing the plugin, and Martin Seibert take a look at the features of the plugin. By a simple click, a user can join the event and invite other participants. No need to create and update complicated tables. The plugin is available on the Atlassian Marketplace for only US$ 10 for unlimited users.
The goal of a hackathon is to buckle down and create a product and/or complete a small project under time pressure (at //SEIBERT/MEDIA within 24 hours). The hackathon team alone plans and decides what kind of product or project to work on. We explained the reasons for regularly conducting hackathons in our agile organization in more detailed articles. On the one hand, we strive to create concrete and truly innovative solutions. On the other hand, we try to attain “soft” effects, such as promoting training, teamwork and personal responsibility and motivating our employees. Our latest hackathon took place in early July 2013. In the following chronological field report, we offer insight into the work of the team that designed and developed the EasyEvents Confluence plugin.
