The theme is….“The one thing”: Double your development speed!

Everyone has experienced “the ONE thing": Imagine, you're using a framework that you already know upside-down. Everything seems to work, until that one thing happens - you're now stuck on the issue that you already faced before; in fact, you have faced this issue hundreds of times! It might be a bug, a missing helper or a code generator, or an architecture design flaw that forces you to spend more time and write more code.

You have faced it so many times and felt helplessness. But if this One Thing gets fixed, you would be so much more efficient at your work!

So now it’s your time! It’s time to change Spryker PHP Framework so you get maximum benefits from it and become faster at all the hard work you do. From our side we guarantee that the best implementations will be reviewed and released by our Core Team, and the best ideas will be taken into the roadmap evaluation 🏆️

Note: We'll award prizes according to this theme but you are always welcome to choose to work on something else if you like! Maybe there's an existing Hack project you'd like to continue, or something else Spryker-related that interests you…go for it! :)

Event Highlights:

  • Online Pre-session (March 11th): Dive into ideation and setup online.
  • On-site Day 1 (starting 15:00 CET): Socialize and kick off with a welcome dinner.
  • On-site Day 2 (full day starting 9:00 CET): The Hackathon officially begins!
