The Art of Flânerie
I talk a lot about flexible and multi-skilled teams, but rarely in my current role do I get let loose in one any more. Knowing I need more exposure in these teams I got along to couple of events recently for that exact purpose.
A hackathon (my first), turned out to be a pretty intense experience. I won’t lie, I was definitely the odd one out (not being a developer, not working at a start-up, not having a mac covered in stickers…); and the value I brought was thoroughly exhausted 20 mins into the day (if I’m being kind), but I learnt a load.
