Here we are, with the last quarterly wrap-up of 2022, which was both a rewarding & a beautiful year for us! ๐Ÿ™Œ We got to enjoy many face-to-face events (with a hybrid setup as well) and had diverse and captivating projects to work on. We were so happy to end the year in such a cheerful and meaningful way! 

Let's get into more detail about the last quarter of 2022. ๐Ÿ‘‡

Projects we helped develop ๐Ÿง‘‍๐Ÿ’ป

Let's remember our mission, which is that of developing Powerful Web & Mobile Apps start-to-end. Along with our core values, it beautifully connects with everything we do at Wolfpack Digital. 

Here are some of the projects we added to our extended portfolio in Q4:

BrainCapture - brings accessible EEG scans in low-resource settings through a mobile app that connects via Bluetooth to an amplifier connected to an EEG cap.

Citizen Mint - offers access to assets that solve our planet's biggest challenges by providing a platform for various impactful investment opportunities.

Extra Karte - is a mobile app for the owners of the Extra Karte credit card, allowing them to control their card, transactions, and account details.

ReActive - is a prescription digital therapeutic application that uses the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), lifestyle modification, and other proven psychosocial treatment elements to help people with Overactive Bladder.

Besides these, we continued to work on projects across multiple industries, covering healthtech projects with IoT components, fintech projects, beauty projects, and many more. 

Hosting events at our Den ๐Ÿก

During Q4, we opened our doors for two open events:

  • Hacktoberfest '22, powered by Wolfpack Digital. ๐Ÿ•ธ Hacktoberfest is an annual initiative that encourages developers all around the world to support and contribute to their favorite open-source projects. Developers from Cluj-Napoca, along with some of our wolves, gathered at our office and worked on a set of open-source shell, Ruby & Rails scripts with the purpose of benchmarking your machine and comparing it to the rest.

  • Lean Coffee. โ˜•๏ธ Lean Coffee is an informal meeting where participants set the agenda as they go. Topics may differ from lean/agile development, project management, leadership, and business. 

Wolves in their natural habitat ๐Ÿบ

Our recurring events we have company-wide returned to face-to-face events, as we mentioned in the beginning, and also ensured a hybrid setup as well so everyone can join. 

Let’s now jump to our internal events in Q4. ๐Ÿคฉ

Superheroes Halloween ๐Ÿฆธ๐Ÿฆน

Halloween ๐ŸŽƒ is one of our favorite traditions, and for 2022 we decided to make it a themed edition. Everyone dressed as superheroes for our traditional Spooky Standup and enjoyed a fun day at the office. 
We even had a Costume Contest ๐Ÿ† where we awarded the best of the best!

Entering the festive season ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ 

December was all about festive activities! ๐Ÿคฉ 

We decorated our office Christmas tree in early December, accompanied by mulled wine and carols in the background. ๐ŸŽต

We always keep in mind those less fortunate, and we are aware that the holiday season can be quite challenging for them. We made it our goal to bring some moments of happiness to children from two foster homes from Cluj-Napoca, “Casuta Bucuriei” & “Casa Grigorescu”, with some special gifts offered by our team. ๐ŸŽ

We also prepared a space in our office where everyone could donate their old garments to be put to better use by others, and we donated them to disadvantaged families in our area. This action was also one centered around sustainability, especially since the festive season comes with lots of shopping and waste generation.

Christmas Dinner is a tradition for us, and we celebrate it uniquely every year! 

L'Alchimiste was our chosen venue for the event, a vibrant place in the heart of our home city, Cluj-Napoca. โค๏ธ For a Christmassy time, we enjoyed some engaging activities between the delicious meals, and our favorite one was receiving gifts from the Wolf-Santa. ๐Ÿบ๐Ÿง‘‍๐ŸŽ„The rest of the night was spent on the dancefloor as the wolves really do know how to party. ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ•บ

An inspiring community ๐Ÿ’ซ
