Team empowerment in the digital age thrives on exploration and hands-on discovery. Cloudoki has ported its internal sprint hackathons to share the innovation experience with non-technical and tech-savvy audiences alike. We tailor Hackfridays for each scale-up and enterprise individually, including seasonal tracks.
Hackfridays is very well suited to enhance the InfoSec team impact.
They learn new things from our experts who work around specific themes.
Participants get a fast and proper introduction, advanced or master classes. This is how they discover new technologies, frameworks and methods.
Things that are usable even after the hackathon
We get our and their hands dirty quickly. We build our own app with data from a sensor linked to an Arduino. Marketing and IT work together to on a Bitcoin concept or we program a first VR experience. The results might sometimes be less important, but learning and research is key.
We always work towards a concrete goal; your product, a specific use case or a problem within your company. We define a MVP or POC and create a prototype that will convince all stakeholders and preferably the end user.
Stimulate innovative thinking and doing by focussing on a case with multiple stakeholders.
UPDATE YOUR KNOWLEDGE
Learn new languages, frameworks, techniques or hardware from field-experienced experts.
Make your company stand out for technical profiles. The ones who work for you and those who don't (yet).
Innovate, stimulate, learn, play and produce.

SIMON FLORÉ, CTO AT TEAMLEADER
Within a succesful hackathon weekend, together with the product team we built a complete new user interface. In a two-day hackathon we dived into Angular 2 and React, which helped us to decide which front-end framework is the best fit for our architecture. Hackfridays took care of the setup, the expertise and the beers.
KURT ROGIERS, INNOVATION ARCHITECT AT TUI/JETAIR
I raised the demand for a hackathon formula for the IT team. This to encourage innovation and inspire developers within TUI. These HackFridays happened every 3 weeks in both Belgium and the Netherlands, which generated attention from our colleagues at TUI Nordics. The guys at Hackfridays have the knowledge and courage to get their hands dirty for innovation.
HackFridays is a spin-off from Cloudoki,specialized in API-centric application architecture and development, serving startups, scale-ups, SME and Enterprise clients.By partnering up with Nerdlab, HackFridays has its own fablab.
