Hackathon 2017

On November 10th, the members of every team at Mirego mix and matched to build unique digital products, in 24 hours. Our hackathon is a great occasion to explore audacious ideas, to perpetuate friendly rivalry, to learn new technologies and to optimize internal processes.


At Mirego, choosing (healthy) lunches is a bimonthly imperative. Forgetting to do so results in weeks of default lunches and sadness. Cécile helps everyone in making better choices (or just making choices). It is a mobile application with a reminder system, nutrition facts, and a lunch bank, where everyone who is away from the office can give lunches to others. No more spam on Slack!

Managing user rights on GitHub is not a transparent process. Getting the picture of "who has access to what" is limited to administrators. Requesting access is a process that has to be managed. Heimdall is a command-line tool that converts GitHub teams into humanly readable files that can be stored and managed with Git. Making the repository available to all allows anyone within the team to see who has access to what and use pull requests to request access or to discuss potential change to how security is managed.

Mirego has reached a critical growth threshold, meaning it's getting more and more complicated to remember everyone's name and role in the company.

Three good answers give you access to a crunchy fact or a picture from the secret vault.
