One of my favorite events throughout the year is the trivago tech get together. It’s the one time where we all get together to celebrate tech. Here are some impressions from 2019:
This is part two of our series about trivago engineer’s side projects. The first part is here.
Fanatic learning is one of trivago’s core values that forms a fundamental part of our engineering culture. It’s very valuable to have curious minds around you that connect the dots to come up with new ideas and love to exchange knowledge on various topics. Since many of our engineers are involved in their own initiatives and projects outside work, we decided to introduce you to some of these side projects. The goal is to recognize their achievements and share their knowledge with our broader tech community. Take a look and feel free to reach out to any of them if you’d like to exchange on any of their topics!
Breakpoint 2020 is a 4-day virtual summit on everything testing. It takes place on July 20-23, 2020. One of our engineers, Benjamin Bischoff will be giving a talk and BrowserStack did an interview with him!
FOSDEM in Brussels is one of our favorite conferences each year as it fully reflects our love for Free and Open Source software.
Gyumin Lee and Eunae Jang were participants in this year’s trivago Tech Camp. We did an interview with them to learn about their experiences and get some insights into the project development of triversity - a project management tool for university collaboration.
On 11th of November 2017 trivago hosted a Hackathon at NASDAQ's MarketSite in New York. The winners were awarded with a trip through Europe to visit trivago's offices as well as conference tickets for [The Next Web, Amsterdam](https://thenextweb.com/event/tnw-conference/). We invited the winners to our office, where we got to the chance to interview them about their Hackathon experience.
Hackathons! That’s where you feel super excited about creating something interesting, or useful, or just entertaining. They are a great way to encourage creativity and teamwork. Recently, trivago hosted a Python Hackathon in collaboration with the Python Usergroup Düsseldorf. The event was a full success!
Sometimes advertisements just have to be bold. Especially when your goal is to hire creative thinkers, why not give them something to... think about!? That was our goal when we planned a new marketing campaign for Software Engineers.
