PAC's First DevJam!
Paciolan hosted a DevJam, or internal hack-a-thon, in April. Four teams with cross-department representation collaborated to create an end-to-end solution for a metadata management system. This tool will create new event discovery opportunities, allowing clients to gain access to publish events with distribution partners including Facebook and Google.
Participants broke out into four groups: JamPAC, Smells Like Team Spirit, L’Arc, and Reverse Cambridge Analytica. Teams spent two, 12-hour days collaborating, coding, and creating some incredible solutions. In addition to food — and lots of caffeine — participants received swag from some of Paciolan’s incredible partners including Facebook, Experience, VetTix, and Groupmatics.
Long hours and late nights culminated in a presentation by each team before an esteemed panel of judges: President Kim Damron, CTO Keith White, CRO Steve Demots, CFO Kim Boren, Sr. VP of Marketing Craig Ricks, and Director of Strategic Operations Lisa Langham. All four teams created incredible solutions, and components will be implemented from each in the final tool.
Team JamPAC, with their friendly UI, good usability features, and incredible progress, won bragging rights, medals, and a trip to K1 Speed! Stay tuned for more news about how the groundwork laid by DevJam is incorporated into a future Paciolan tool. Innovation at Paciolan is alive and growing!
