Rocket Fiber’s 2nd Annual Hack-A-Thon – Hack of Thrones
“People who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.” – Steve Jobs
70 submitted project ideas, 52 finished projects, 27 hours and some sleepy team members later, we’d love to recap this weekend for you!
On Friday, February 23rd, our team gathered at Rocket Fiber HQ on Woodward in Detroit to kick off our exciting plan to execute on innovations, projects and ideas that had been collected over the months prior. We launched into our Hack of Thrones by assigning cross-functional teams who would come together as houses for the next 27 hours to compete in the Game of Execution.
We moved over to our Data Center on Rosa Parks Blvd that afternoon and continued the work. There was food…..so much food….karaoke, pie eating contests, dance parties, LEGO® team building exercises and lots of laughter as teams worked to get as much done as they could to move our mission forward.
We worked on projects ranging from technology enhancements to help with efficiency and scalability, business process controls optimization, to cleaning/organizing our offices and trucks, to creating new hire training documents. The innovation, creativity and effort put forth by our team was incredible and so appreciated. This was our chance to get all of those things done that we put off in the day to day because we’re so head down growing our business and servicing our clients.
