Another Jack Bauer Day

We recently had another Jack Bauer Day at Voltage. These are days when everyone in engineering can do pretty much anything that you want to for 24 hours.

It's truly amazing to see what our engineers can pull off in 24 hours. One of them completely overhauled a feature of our existing products to make it much more user-friendly. Another one single-handedly added a very complicated feature that a big customer was asking for. Yet another managed to implement an identity-based encryption algorithm in JavaScript. Others did more research-oriented things, like implementing a homomorphic encryption scheme.

After the event, each of the teams gave a short presentation on what they had accomplished. It was hard to fit all of these into the two-hour slot that we had, but it was a very interesting two hours.
