The Wintergarden typically serves as an eating and meeting place for bank employees. During Code One, the Wintergarden is transformed into a collaborative workspace for the 48-hour hackathon.

With abundant Monster™, snacks, and catered meals, hackers spent less time worrying about hunger and sleep, and more time focusing on what they do best.
