Seven multinationals' development centers will collaborate at the IATI WeekathonFeb. 16, 2014
Multinational development centers in Israel will hold their second Weekathon less than a year after their first meeting. Seven multinationals centers will attend the Weekathon, compared with the eight centers that attended last June's meeting. The participants are the centers of Citi, Ebay, General Electric, General Motors, Microsoft, Red Hat, and 3M. Red Hat's development center in Ra'anana will host the event.
The forum of multinationals development centers in Israel at theIsrael Advanced Technology Industries (IATI) is organizing the event, where developers at the companies - something that is impossible in the US for example - will work together with the intention of collaborating on the development of future products. Each development center will send 3-5 software engineers to the Weekathon, where they will be cut off from their usual work environment and work in groups to develop new ideas.
