AppFolio Gets Back to Basics with Annual Spring Hack Day

Spring Hack Day 2017, while technically unthemed, we asked participants to get back to basics. No fluff or frills; the focus was on just making something great.

Often the projects selected are ideas that live on the internal AppFolio Property Manager or MyCase “product wishlist” and sometimes they are completely out of the realm of our software. It allows product developers and software engineers to step out of their day-to-day comfort zone and look at things from a different angle. It’s an opportunity to stretch the creative muscles, so at the end of the day, everyone is motivated and energized to get back to work on making the best AppFolio and MyCase products they can.

Hack Day 2017 – An Engineering Odyssey

AppFolio’s biannual Hack Day is back and this year it took on planetary proportions with “Cosmos – Hack Day Odyssey.”

The 24-hour product development Hack Day in the Santa Barbara and San Diego offices started last Thursday morning and ended Friday at noon, when participating teams were asked to present their projects to a room full of engineers, the latest class of interns, and other curious AppFolians.

Some light-hearted projects from the celestial celebration included the creation of a mobile device charging and storage station made from a portable cabinet, and Cornholio!, AppFolio’s first official custom bean bag toss set.

    I have been working at AppFolio full-time (More than 3 years)


    Where do I start...

    AppFolio has opened up so many doors for my professional development & internal growth. Leadership is not only transparent but they are willing to partner with the teams in hopes of working together to accomplish their goals. In the past 3 years, I have been promoted 6 times and have never been held back from a new opportunity to continue growing my AppFolio career.

    Executives are constantly interacting with departments and making sure everyone is up to speed on recent news, new ideas, & overall health of the company (which is very ensuring).

    Again, the opportunities for advancement are everywhere (as long as you bring a positive outlook and strong work ethic to your team/department).

    Overall, I owe so much of my success to AppFolio and couldn't have choose a better place to advance my career.


    No cons, everything has been wonderful!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up guys because I have never felt so respected and valued as an employee.
