BoS 2012 Workshop, team 'DECRAPIFIED HAMSTER BADASSES' output

No comments

This year’s workshop sessions were designed to help get people talking and thinking together in smaller groups. We hope everyone had the opportunity to enjoy themselves and meet some interesting people. Each team had a maximum of 20 people from different companies and they all worked together to produce a series of specific outputs to 10 challenges. Overall available time was 90 minutes and the results were submitted online. Here are the outputs of the team DECRAPIFIED HAMSTER BADASSES.
