Idea #6 – Hackathon holidays

I have an idea – a lot of software engineers would rather take time off to learn skills or work on a project than “relaxing” in a beach town.

I got admit, I’m one of those people. I have done a couple times that I got holidays to work on a project or two. I had a great time just working on something that brings me happiness and it is highly beneficial to my career.

Now let’s say I could combine learning, career improvement, relaxing and experiencing different cultures overseas. Here is how I think it would be cool. First there is a list of available courses or projects to work, location and dates that it will happen. After purchasing it, you just need to organise the flights. Or better yet, maybe the flights are part of package.

Imagine how cool having a 10 days developing a cool app while enjoying the sun in Thailand? Maybe companies would even sponsor you

The Debater personality type is the ultimate devil’s advocate, thriving on the process of shredding arguments and beliefs and letting the ribbons drift in the wind for all to see. Debaters don’t do this because they are trying to achieve some deeper purpose or strategic goal, but for the simple reason that it’s fun. No one loves the process of mental sparring more than Debaters, as it gives them a chance to exercise their effortlessly quick wit, broad accumulated knowledge base, and capacity for connecting disparate ideas to prove their points.
