Hacks, Jams, Sprints… accelerated working formats are growing in popularity. Impactful, engaging and easy to schedule, it’s no surprise that organisations are looking to these “pressure cooker” events to crack problems and accelerate solutions in fields as diverse as design, software development, community building and even book authoring.
But how do they work – online and offline – and how might they work better? How might we manage outputs and outcomes? What exactly can hacks, jams and sprints do? And – crucially – when should we stick to traditional, slower working practices?
CMPRSSD*, the first conference of this type, will bring together various communities and practitioners who are using hacks, jams and sprints. A remote prototype in 2020 will lead into a larger event in 2021.
Together, we will explore what we are doing, and what we might be doing next.
CMPRSSD will take place remotely
in a timezone near you
on the 16 & 17 November 2020,
as part of Nürnberg's prestigious Digital Festival.
* CMPRSSD is pronounced like "compressed", just faster.
Tickets are free, but limited – and available by application only. If you would like to apply, please go to this link and tell us a little about yourself and what you would bring to the conference. Perhaps you have a unique perspective or experience, or could offer a breakout session or short talk. We look forward to hearing from you!
