The first ONTOFORCE Hackathon

Early 2020, the world went into lockdown and so did ONTOFORCE. With the development for our next major software release at full speed, we were challenged to switch from office space to working from home without losing momentum. A few months later, we successfully released DISQOVER 6.00. Mission accomplished. 

After this tour de force, the software development team looked forward to a well-earned summer holiday to boost creativity. And what is the programming equivalent of flying to a tropical island and sipping cocktails? A week-long, team-wide hackathon. 

People presented their elevator pitches during the weekly team meeting, and an avalanche of ideas ensued. Then the development team went off the radar. Impromptu teams were formed, frontenders delved into backend code, data scientists switched to python and backenders integrated data. If you listened closely to our slack channels, you could hear the proverbial sound of hammering. It was an empowering experience that brought people together despite the WFH context.

Today, we are proud to share some of our projects:

    Ticketing

    Ticketing

    In a showcase of DISQOVER’s versatility, we ingested our own development Jira tickets in DISQOVER. This allowed new visualizations, easy filtering across projects and following linked data.

    Dark Mode

    Introducing a new look for DISQOVER, Dark Mode let users choose a different color scheme that made colorful dashboards stand out.

    3D Charts

    3D Charts

    Tackling the challenge of complex  data, we experimented with 3D charts that show multidimensional data in an intuitive way.

    Programming Language

    In a battle of programming languages, we found out which performs the fastest union find, C++ or Rust.

    We are equally excited to keep some other projects secret for now, as they might turn up on our roadmap.
