First of all, we want to wish you all a Happy New Year from the team here at Zalando Tech! We can feel the excitement and buzz in the corridors, and we are convinced that 2016 is going to be one thrilling, adventurous and full of surprises kind of year.
But, before we get started, we wanted to reminisce a little bit on a special week in December, a.k.a HackWeek #4.
It was our first international Hack Week, which brought together technologists from our Tech Hubs in Berlin, Dublin, Dortmund,Erfurt,Hamburg,Mönchengladbach and Helsinki, to work on projects of their choice. The goal of Hack Week at Zalando is to drive and encourage a culture of innovation, but also to allow our technologists to live their passions at work. Not only did teams think out of the box, but they threw the box away completely!
Hack Week #4 reminded us how much creativity and innovation can be achieved when individuals team up for a cause. Teaming up also created a whole new atmosphere and experience for individuals with different backgrounds and skills, working on projects with a common goal in mind. We loved every moment of it, and look forward to sharing some highlights with you. Have a look below, and let us know on Twitter what you think of our Hack Week!
