The first ever Nansen Wintercamp is now taking place in Koppars, Järvsö, Sweden.
The idea behind the Wintercamp is simple. We travel to a remote location and stay at a private, secluded house for 4 to 5 days with fellow Nansen staff from all our offices. There, in the daytime, we code, hack, create and build together. When we don't code we cook, eat and stay with each other, enjoy the surrounding expansive grounds and leisure activities with each other.
The general approach is to keep it spontaneous, unscheduled but loosely follow the theme; Nansen wireframe boilerplate and Nansen Encore.
The 14 of us, designers, UX:ers, frontenders, backorders and project managers, from the London, Stockholm and Chicago office arrived yesterday, Wednesday, at lunch. The day began with intro sessions to the Encore framework, the Boilerplate and a general open-ideas discussion on what we wanted to build.
Here is a few of the ideas that we want to build
After that we divided ourselves into 5 groups and declared the Wintercamp as open. End of the first day!
