New Everything – IDEMIA Hackathon 2022
Some of our colleagues in Lodz spent 24H programming innovative and unique ideas to answer a topical question: “in a post-pandemic world where everything is new, how can we use our experience and technologies to make this hybrid life easier?” This 2-day competitive event, organized end of March, was a great opportunity to boost our innovation culture as well as collaboration and creativeness!
4 teams participated and presented their demos to the jury and to the whole Lodz teams. One thing to report: our digital strategy – stating that all our new developments should be Cloud native – is so well propagated in our teams in Lodz, that Cloud was number one choice for all the solutions proposed by the teams. Congrats to everyone for their work and innovative spirit!
