SIT Innojam NL 2014, day 2

This blog post is a continuation of Jan Penninkhof ‘s post from Saturday, to be found here. You may also want to read Michael Woidt‘s blog post about the participation of the students at sitinnojamnl.

The second day of Innojam officially started at midnight, since at Innojam we just go on coding all night, remember 🙂 ? Due to a wedding I couldn’t stay on Friday evening, so I only made it back past eight o’clock. Most of the participants were already/still up and running, but I could still see a few students sleeping on the couches (no pics to protect the innocent). During lunch I got this photo from one of them, Ayoub Mobarik (thanks Ayoub!) as proof that apparently even students can’t pull an all-nighter anymore these days:


I’m sure anyone who has been attending an innojam will recognize this 🙂 .

So what else is there to say? The teams tried frantically to get some live demos up and running (except for team 4, they appeared to be very relaxed?!) until 15.00u, when it was time to stop coding and present their prototypes in front of the jury (pic below courtesy of the VNSG), consisting of (from left to right) Johan Bouwmeester (municipality Almere), Thomas Bresser (Philips, one of the Design Thinking coaches), Hanneke Dam (VNG, Association of Dutch Municipalities) and Rob van der Marck (VNSG):


Team presentations and results

So what did the teams present? Well, for that you’ll have to watch their presentations below (beware: they’re in Dutch, but you can get an idea anyway):

Team 1

Team 2

Team 3

Team 4

Team 5

Team 6

After some deliberation the jury announced team 4 as the winning team. Runner up was team 3, and third place went to team 1. Congratulations to Ronald Konijnenburg, Sven van Leuken, Twan van den Broek, Niels Willems, L. van Hengel, Celine Estripeau, Peter Tonies and (student) Ayoub Mobarik!

Final thank you words

As Jan Penninkhof already stated: we’re very grateful for the sponsoring of this years edition, so here they are once more: Thank you The Next View (main sponsor), SAP NL, Ciber, Superp, Intenzz, DesignersDNA, myBrand, Creetion, Vrumona, C/Tac, Phoqus, CGI and newFounders!

Of course also a big thank you to everyone that made this SIT Innojam possible, and while I’m bound to forget people, I do want to mention the people from the VNSG: Mientje Paais, Denise Passchier and Claudia Bleijswijk during the preparations, and Claudia, Hans de Labije and Rob van der Marck during the event, as well as Jan Koster from SAP Nederland.

      Thank you Kumud,

      But I can't take much credit. Real kudos go to Jan Koster and the VNSG, as well as to all the community members that assisted, by being Master of Ceremony, Technical Expert (or being both, like Jan Penninkhof 🙂 ), Design Thinking coach, etc.
