Rocket.Build 2020: Highlighting our Finalists Part 2

With 51 fantastic finalists, it was clearly hard to narrow down our top projects this year. Overall, we had 450 Rocketeers from 14 countries build projects that represented 50% of all functions at Rocket. And in an effort to showcase our global participants, we’re highlighting a few more top projects from Rocket.Build.  Zowe Plugin for […]

Rocket.Build 2020: Highlighting our Finalists Part 1

Although Rocket.Build 2020 presented its own set of challenges—building and collaborating remotely, dealing with unprecedented real-world challenges, and more—it also managed to bring new successes that will carry on to future years. With the event being entirely virtual, we were able to create global teams and have more participants than ever. Overall, 450 Rocketeers from […]

Rocket.Build 2020: Virtual Event Expands Possibilities

Rocket.Build is an annual hackathon event that is meant to engage Rocketeers, partners, customers, and the community to create real-world applicable solutions. For me, the event even predates my knowledge of Rocket Software. I participated in the community build a few years ago, and it’s what introduced me to the company. Now that I’m a […]

Rocket.Build 2020: Challenging Expectations

There never seems to be enough time in the day to do something extra. The days are filled with meetings and making sure solutions are provided to our customers when they need it. Rocket.Build is the one time of the year when Rocketeers can think beyond their daily work and develop solutions we feel can […]

Rocket.Build 2020: Connecting to Solve Real-World Problems

With most of the world plugged into a remote lifestyle at the moment, Rocket Software has embraced the new normal to hold its first-ever virtual hackathon event. In an effort to engage partners and Rocketeers across the globe, Rocket.Build is connecting teams online to tackle real-world issues.  This is my third Rocket.Build event, having participated […]

Rocket.Build 2020: Building Products to Improve Efficiencies

This is my first Rocket.Build as a participant. In previous Rocket.Build events, I’ve attended the awards evening and had a chance to meet fellow Rocketeers from different offices. It’s always been a great opportunity to find out what people are working on across the company and to meet people in different roles at Rocket. I […]

Rocket.Build 2020: Going Virtual

As a seasoned Rocket.Build participant (I’ve participated every year since its inception), I was initially skeptical when it was announced as a virtual event this year. In the early years, when Rocket.Build was held in a hotel, we spent the week so consumed with our projects that we would stumble upstairs to our rooms in […]

Rocket.Build 2020: Leading Innovation

There’s a feeling of code in the air. Yes, it’s that time of the year again—although a bit late, no thanks to COVID—when we let our grey matter twist and turn as we prepare ourselves to fail and fail again. Who knew failing could be so exciting and informative? But like all Rocket.Builds, the intention […]

Announcing Rocket.Build 2020

In a year full of unexpected events, there is one certainty: we must adapt and find better ways to accomplish our goals. Between working remotely and reducing travel, there have been many changes across our organization. But in the face of change and uncertainty, we wanted an important Rocket tradition to continue on. Starting today, […]

Rocket.Build 2019: Bigger and better

As I reflect on how far Rocket.Build has come, I can’t help but think back to the very first coding challenge we hosted in 2013. What started as a small hackathon during the annual Rocket Leadership Summit in Boston has grown to a series of global events that I look forward to every year. From […]
