We are a closely-knit team at //SEIBERT/MEDIA, and we enjoy spending time together during various events and have also established a number of different company sports groups for a healthy balance – from soccer to yoga, to badminton. I will introduce you to some of them in this post!
Recently, we were able to put our additional office in Kirchgasse 2 with room for around 30 people into operation. We are very happy about the change, the unpacking and our recovered “leg freedom” in the main office, and we are looking forward to having a great time in the new office!
My colleague Torsten – our pioneer in landscaping and cultivation – recently came up with the great idea of planting our terrace with useful plants instead of simply decorative ones. Space is abundant, and especially for colleagues who live in the city without their own garden, urban gardening is a great opportunity to put our green thumbs together. There’s also something to hanging out during the lunch break in our own garden with the growing vegetables! 🙂
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.
