Last fall Pearson held its very first company-wide hackathon. The two day global event saw hundreds of Pearson employees collaborating side-by-side and remotely, with its main locations headquartered in New York City, Minneapolis, Indianapolis, San Francisco, London, Beijing, Delhi, and more!
To be considered for local and overall prizes, participants were encouraged to use company API content that included (but not limited to) Penguin, eCollege, DK, Financial Times, in addition to few that weren't quite ready to go live. We documented all of the fun from the London and New York locations, check out the videos below. This was the first of many that we plan to hold semi-annually, stay tuned!
