FedEx Day 2022

FedEx Day 2022

DMC recently participated in its 9th annual FedEx Day. On FedEx Day, DMCers take a break from typical workday tasks to collaborate on an internal project. The project must be delivered, at least in part, by the end of the day. 

While this time is often used to complete a task that one doesn't have time to complete during a normal workday, participants are encouraged to spend the day on a project that is fun and innovative.

DMC offices nationwide participated in this beloved tradition. The day began with a kickoff meeting at DMC's Chicago headquarters, where opening remarks and DMC trivia were delivered over breakfast. Teams then dispersed to brainstorm and, shortly afterwards, FedEx Day 2022 officially began.

Here are some of this year's projects. Stay tuned for more projects from FedEx day 2022!


Ping Pong Dashboard

DMC's IT and App Dev teams migrated the Chicago offices ping pong scoring app to Microsoft Azure and implemented a touch-screen display in the Chicago office breakroom.
