EPISODE 4
THE FUTURE OF WORK

The way we work, learn, organize our time and our workplace, motivate ourselves and communicate within teams is changing dramatically due to technology. Startups like Basecamp, Slack and Telegram have revolutionized our work life immensely - can you do it? Now it’s your turn to become creative!

Sign up for the next Burda Hackday in Munich and create solutions for the future of work. Collaborate in teams with designers, developers and experts and convert your ideas into reality.

All you can code!

Come alone or in a team, with ideas and skills, code and have fun in one of the coolest locations in Munich with 150 participants!

How do you imagine the future of work?

Check out these potential areas and topics you could work on:


Work environments & work places

Meetings often leave you with zero productive output. How can we reduce the time wasted for ineffective activities and create environments and processes where everyone can develop to their full potential?

Lifelong learning & knowledge management

How should the perfect learning environment look like? What sort of tools and gadgets could help people to learn better?

Team communication & remote work

How can we optimize communication within distributed teams and team members who live at the other end of the world?

Productivity & performance

What do we need to be really productive (apart from energy drinks) - and what does productivity really mean? How can you measure it?

Networks & collaboration

How can we reach out to other great minds on the planet, share our knowledge and work on new stuff together?

Talent management & HR

How can companies find the right people to hire - and how can potential employees find the right company?

Motivation & gamification

How can we make work more like play? How can we get rewarded for our work and our physical activities leading to more productivity?

Organizational design & self-organization

How should an organization be structured and how can we manage ourselves and not get distracted by Facebook likes, a Tweet or an email with a funny cat picture?

Work contracts & income

Is there any way we can make work contracts more human and flexible? How can we improve the way we make money - and for which tasks?

What people say about us

Jascha Quintern

3 times Burda Hackday winner

I’ll never forget my very first hackathon: the Burda Hackday. My team won unexpectedly. I have become addicted to Hackathons. As a result I founded Hackerstolz and started to organize own events. Thereby you can say, Burda Hackday changed my life.

Alexandra Schiel

DLD Conferance

I really love the atmosphere of the Burda Hackday. Over a hundred young people come together to code new stuff, they are being creative, have little sleep, drink a lot of energy drinks and do a lot of brainwork. Last time, we at Burda implemented one of the ideas at our bunte.de website which was great! A hackathon is also a great way to find talent.
