2012 Christmas Hack
In a year filled with significant milestones, with our heads mostly up in the clouds, MYOB chose to close the year not just with Christmas parties but with something better – a Hack Day.
The MYOB Product Development team had their first Hack-a-Thon last Thursday as an excuse to hack our own processes and products. Teams had 1.5 days to crack their heads and come up with something brilliant.
We had over 20 demos and they ran from something fishy to pure genius.
The participants had to satisfy a difficult set of criteria and awards were handed out to the best.
The awards were certainly well-deserved with winners in categories such as “Best finger clicker and fastest talker”, “Best prop used by stealing your 5 year old child’s toy” and the “Best copyright infringement of Disney characters”.
All in all, some of the hacks were pretty outstanding – ones we hope to deliver to our customers next year. I walked away feeling rest assured the product development team has been listening to our customers and is ready to deliver next year.
It goes to show how some essential things – beer, red bull and team spirit – can make your products great.
And with the long holidays coming, MYOB would like to wish readers of The Pulse to have a jolly good break, a merry Christmas and an awesome New Year’s party.
The Pulse will be on a break starting from today. We will be back on the 7th of January.
If you do need us, our customer support is still available during the break.
