It is that time of the year again for the Coding4Kindness annual event! Anchor Point was honored to help Salesforce and AgileForce earlier this week for the first time with this event. Salesforce’s 1-1-1 philanthropy model was truly inspiring to participate in and witness as brilliant team members worked with local, non-profit organizations to assist with technology solutions. This 12-hour hackathon involved anything from email template designs to assisting with company website issues so that businesses could conduct business more efficiently.
The event was held in a large conference room in the Gibson building in downtown Indianapolis where the non-profit representatives met with product owners, scrum masters, developers, designers, and other professionals to get their products implemented and meet their business needs. Each representative explained what the product was and what they wanted the end goal to be. Once that was established, the various team members collaborated, came up with a game plan, and hacked away to meet their goals.
Throughout the day, Anchor Point ensured that Salesforce volunteers were rewarded for all of their hard work and had a lot of fun doing it! We did this by holding tournaments for foosball, ping pong, and pool and participating in raffle drawings with great prizes. Furthermore, the day was filled with yummy goodies including candy, doughnuts, cupcakes, a burger bar, and an amazing Hawaiian barbecue dinner.
We had an amazing time helping Salesforce employees, and we cannot say enough about how incredible they are and how much of an impact this event will have on the organizations and the community.
