InMobi is dedicating 24 hours to creative genius and innovation. Its InMobi’s Hack Day across the globe, where all our folks will be wearing their “Ideas Hat” and hacking their way to our wall of fame.
Its Day 1 today and the floors are buzzing with excitement and energy accompanied by some loud Rock music. The rules are simple – keep it relevant and keep it wild. After all “a single idea from the human mind can build cities. An idea can transform the world and rewrite all the rules”. So, keep the beer flowing and the keyboard typing.
The hack day is going to culminate in the grand finale tomorrow with the demonstrations and the judging. While the teams are busy building cool stuff, the judges have their heads together to come up with equally innovative awards. If you see our CTO wearing an engineers name on his T-shirt for the next month, do not be alarmed. The engineer deserved it!
Here is an example of the atmosphere at our Bangalore office today. Simple words of inspiration by Krishnan, InMobi’s Director of Engineering.
Dear Dream Team,
Hackers every where, the war cries are getting louder, the adrenaline pumping at dizzying levels, I say to you
BRING IT ON!!! TEAM WE ARE AT WAR, ONE TO REDEEM, CONQUER & CAPTIVATE, UNLEASH UR IMAGINATION AT EPIC PROPORTION, I KNOW U WILL PREVAIL. THIS IS WHERE WE FIGHT THIS IS WHERE WE WIN
Do not let the fog of war cloud your imagination, understand your competition, attack ruthlessly for today is a good day to kill the competition. These are not times for long mail but I thought I will share the following; reading optional “Long years ago we made a tryst with destiny, and now the time comes when we shall redeem our pledge, not wholly or in full measure, but very substantially. At the stroke of the midnight hour, when the world sleeps, India will awake to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance. It is fitting that at this solemn moment, we take the pledge of dedication to the service of India and her people and to the still larger cause of humanity” – Nehru.
