You don’t have to be a developer to get the freedom to develop ideas besides your daily work. Once a year all employees are invited to join Prototyping Days and work in project teams on an overarching topic. Similar to HackWeek it is also a great opportunity to think outside the box and work together with colleagues from different departments and locations. The „reward“ for some days of great collaboration is the big XING summer party with food, drinks and music.
Have a look at the video from last year’s Prototyping Days that shows some impressions.
Participating in the hackweek is not restricted to coding only – everyone can realize his ideas of improving workflows or just build amazing tools to make the work life more easy.
To support the engineers during their daily work and especially for the hackweeks XING offers some nice toys to play with – and if you need something new or special you can place your order and XING takes care of it.
A short overview of the XING techpark:
The Ultimaker 3D-Printer enables you to think up and create real things and bring them to life.
