October 22nd marks the kick-start of the second edition of the FinTP Hackathon.
The opening event, dubbed “FinTP In Between Two Hackathons” was aimed to provide some highlights on this second hackathon and what’s in it for the participants. Allevo’s senior business consultants, developers, professional customer support, business development, process design and commercial representatives have shared their views related to the final tunings Allevo undertakes prior to openly publishing, in January 2014, FinTP and its set of features. They also revealed the timeline of further releases and how we plan to keep improving the agility and relevance of our presence in the community.
This hackathon has two more stages.
The development stage: over the following six weeks, each participant will be able to get familiar with the available source code and can choose to work on one of the suggested themes or to anything they find more interesting. Anybody can publish their own ideas and bring their contribution to the framework we’re presenting. Ideas and suggestions are more than welcome. Any idea is a good idea: business, technical, fun… And any good idea can be improved into a great idea.
The closing session on December 12, 2013 – In the first half of the day, it will host a workshop for each type of professional profile of the participants, and in the second half of the day a conclusions session to deliver the opinion of both Allevo and the rest of the participants on the readiness of the FinTP project for being published. Last but not least, we will reward the contributors with post Saint Nicolas and pre Santa Claus gifts.
And here are the themes we proposed or where you could help:
- Message editor with validation and correction
- Performance dashboard
- Next big thing
… but, remember, your creativity has no limits!
We have shared the FinTP Hackathon #2 experience on our blog, enjoy!
