Game of Code's organisers met with Banque Raiffeisen right after the 36-hours hackathon to understand why the bank chose to sponsor the competition and what have been the benefits of it.
Sophie Macri, Head of Communication at Banque Raiffeisen, shared her feedback with us.
Why did you choose to sponsor a challenge at Game of Code? What did it bring to your company?
The pandemic has undeniably accelerated digitalisation and highlighted the importance of digital communication tools. For Banque Raiffeisen it was important to support this event in order to connect with IT talents all over the world and explore different solutions for our open community challenge.
What did you think about the solutions/projects proposed by the teams during the weekend?
The quality of both the projects and the pitches was outstanding. We did not expect to see so many different outcomes. Each idea was unique and made sense.
Would you recommend this competition?
We would definitely recommend supporting Game of Code because it allows enthusiastic coders to put their creativity to work and it strengthens the IT community.
If you had to pass a message to coding teams all over the world, from which country would you like to get an answer from in particular?
None in particular really. Game of Code has shown us that the IT sector seems to be well represented in many different countries.
