RAD Hackathon

A studious atmosphere reigned in the IRISnet room on 17 June when 24 developers (eight teams of three), mainly from the BRIC but also from the COCOF (Commission of the French-speaking Community in Belgium) and Bruxelles Environnement, took part in an RAD (Rapid Application Development) Hackathon.

The aim? To devise four rapid development frameworks to be able to produce ‘disposable’ prototypes or applications quickly while waiting for the necessary budgets to be released.

Today’s use case? Social housing application management.

The developers worked in 90-minute ‘sprint’ sessions followed by a debriefing to explain the progress of the work. While there was no guarantee of a result at the end of the day, cooperation among people who don’t necessarily see one another very often, is enriching and promotes team spirit.

The participants and the BRIC could only benefit!
