1. What connects you as a team?
We are good friends that used to work together in different companies, and nowadays when we live in different countries we often go to hackathons together (or we attend them online). We have a diversity of skills and we believe that is really important for a success on hackathons.
2. Why are you participating in the Hackathon?
We like to challenge our skills by building new solutions and by trying out new technology. We really wanted to build some solution on 5G and we saw this hackathon as a great opportunity to do it.
3. It's snacktime: What gives you the necessary energy or what’s your preferred work place?
When he is not coding, Mohamed is either in the gym or next to the barbeque. He is on a ketogenic diet and believes energy comes from meat and vegetables. Niksa believes that the only energy we need is the one that feeds our computers. We also know he is addicted to Toblerone chocolate and we believe much of his energy comes from it.
Our preferred work place? Goran lives near the beach, whenever he needs some quiet time for himself he likes to do coding there, at least for how long his laptop and mobile phone battery can last.
4. What are your highlights in Düsseldorf or what is your connection to Düsseldorf?
We like to travel and we often go to hackathons to different countries, so beside having fun at the hackathons we also explore different cities. Because we live far away from each other hackathons are opportunities for us to meet. We have never been to Düsseldorf and we hope we'll be able to visit it for the final presentations.
5. How do you collaborate in the days of Corona?
We use different tools for collaboration like Zoom, Slack, Trello, etc. Every day we make a call to quickly discuss what we did the day before, what we plan to do that day and are we on the track overall.
6. How do you collaborate across borders?
Since we know each other very well it is not hard to collaborate across the borders, we meet online and align on our plan of what and how we are doing.
