Platform hack day

On the 8th and 9th July 2021, Platforms will be running a hack event to explore solutions for improving how NHS staff unlock their locked smartcard.  Hacking will take place on the Thursday 15th July, with teams presenting back to everyone on the morning of the 15th.

Hack events are a great way to get to know other people outside your immediate teams, learn about new technologies and tools and have fun trying to find different ways to solve problems!  If you'd like to take part please let us know by emailing us at

The deadline for registering your interest is 1st July so don't delay!  If you haven't taken part in a hack event before and want to know a bit more, please feel free to message myself, Rob van Kooten, Bruno Tonelli or Ed Hiley.

The event is open to everyone in Platforms but please speak to your delivery/tribe lead about attending first (supplier and contract staff are welcome to participate on a non-billable basis).
