First official Nimble Hackathon

The first official NIMBLE Hackathon will take place between 21-23 March 2017 at the premises of Salzburg Research with one goal in mind: build the first working prototype of the NIMBLE platform.

The NIMBLE project has started six months ago. So, it is time to give a short update of the technical progress achieved so far and planned activities:
In the beginning of the project we intensively communicated each other’s ideas and preferences regarding the technical features of the platform. This initial get-to-know-each-other phase was very important, because it helped a lot to synchronise our ideas of NIMBLE and the generic requirements of the NIMBLE platform. Currently, we are heavily working on writing down our agreements in order to achieve the first version of the specification document.

This version will state the basis for the first official NIMBLE Hackathon. It is taking place between March 21-23 at the premises Salzburg Research. Several partners will gather in the offices of the research facility with one specific ambition in their mind: build the first working prototype of the platform. In order to collaboratively achieve this goal three distinct teams are introduced, which are Team Catalogue, Team Supply Chain and Team Infrastructure. Each team will determine its specific goals for the next three days at the event and is going to present a short demonstration on the last day of the Hackathon.

Stay tuned for further updates.
