Full session (30 minutes)

Haggling is a negotiation game in which pairs of players try to reach an agreement on how to split a set of assets, while striving to maximize their score.

In Outbrain we used haggling as a coding challenge in the form of a game / hackathon which swept up the entire R&D organization; keeping everyone playing, strategizing, coding, hacking & learning - all in two weeks of pure energy and fun. The winning team was interestingly comprised only of woman engineers. Our secret sauce? Come and hear!

In this talk we'll tell you more about the haggling game, how we leveraged it as an R&D organization wide learning activity, and how we won!
