Journey through People10 Build week- Code Combat 2018

People10, ‘A lean and agile factory’ with a united group of tech enthusiasts, decided to break the everyday monotony of routine work for something new, fresh and exciting. We introduced “Build week”, an opportunity for our employers to work for their own products and ideas, showcase their innate talent, collaborate with cross-disciplinary teams and make a difference!

“When you take the free will out of learning, that turns it into knowledge.”

The journey of Build week started on 20th July 2018, when a committee was formed to hammer out the details and formulate the layout of the event. It was decided to take it all the way, with not a day or two, but an event running across an entire week , and then, it was off to the races !

The participants had all the freedom of defining their project challenge, build their team as well as deciding on the demonstration/pitch format to bring their ‘idea’ to the forefront.

Kick-starting the event

Build week at people10

A journey of 3 weeks was power packed with rigorous work, new ideas, structuring of the overall event and our designers had left no stone unturned to make it look all exciting and vibrant.

 All inspired by warrior clans and combat we started our preparations and bring in the theme for Code Combat.

White Boarding

“The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.” –H. Jackson Brown Jr. 

Our team working behind the scene to make the entire event successful.

And The Combat Begins…

The best possible preparation for success is to empower yourself with trust in your own capability. As you cannot move forward in any project or task, career unless you plan. And, preparation is not the end but only the beginning…hence all teams got busy with ideation, discussion and planning.

 

Boots on the ground

“You ought to have nailed your colors to the mast, and have fought whilst a timber remained on your ship”. And this was the spirit in the heart of all participants. We could witness a broad spectrum of emotions in the environment: energy, thrill, excitement, anticipation and a sense of togetherness.
