Hackday is coming again

As I have mentioned on my blog previously, Hackday is a wonderful event which is held at IBM each year. The general idea is to see what cool "hacks" employees can build in a single day. These events are a wonderful way to encourage innovation and also build morale because employees get to work on a fun project of their own choosing. I have been involved in the Hackday event since shortly after it started and I entered every Hackday since Hackday 2. As a result I once was awared the title "The Oldest Hacker in Town" in recognition of my long term commitment to the contest.

This years event "Hackday 9" is scheduled to take place next Friday and the newly redesiged contest site is now up and running for employees to register their projects (unfortunately the site is not accessible outside IBM). Although there is a local event planned for the Dublin lab I don't think I will be able to take part myself this year due to the fact that I will be on a course. However, you can rest assured that I will definitely be thinking of all the IBM hackers and I will also be helping out with the judging process later.
