Paint and Code Go Together: Latest AddThis Hackathon

Last week, the AddThis team dropped what they were doing, and signed up to work on different projects in our latest 24-hour hackathon!

Over 30 projects were submitted, and lots of cool things came about as a result. Here are some highlights of how the day went.

Here’s the Virginia team gathered to kick off the hackathon in AddThis style!

May Hackathon 1

Getting to Work

Teams took off into different rooms to plan and code for their projects. Even offsite colleagues dialed in to be part of the event. Hi Rich!

Bringing Out the Paint Brushes!

Our quiet room project took a lot of coordination, and teamwork. But the process brought several of us from different departments together. It was awesome!

Check out the before, during, and after pictures:

Oops. Seems we left our furniture boxes in our colleague’s office. Guess we’ll get to that later. ;)
