FedEx Day has become a tradition at Website Pipeline over the last few years. They typically start on Thursday afternoons, and extend for 24 hours into Friday afternoon, and conclude with presentations from the person or team, revealing what is being delivered (that’s where the “FedEx” concept gets its name: deliver something within 24 hours). It’s a 24-hour period isolated from our busy work and personal lives we use to get our creative juices flowing; we build, fix, invent or learn something related to technology or software.
Our FedEx Days have several things beyond just technical innovation: good food, good drink, and good games. These help fuel the creativity required to develop ideas into delivery.

It took several hours, but congratulations are due to Project Manager Robby Flair and Developer Daniel Dara, who took home the championship and now each have six-foot tall tropies until the next FedEx Day.
