Hi CommerceQuest Crew,

Great news! Spryker’s Hackathon was a great experience: an engaging mix of networking, fun, and tackling development challenges. 🚀

4 Teams took on diverse challenges that developers encountered while creating new commerce applications with Spryker.

We won't steal their thunder, but are happy to give you a quick recap of what those teams worked on.

Thanks for all your hard work - the demos were mind-blowing! 

MassiveData 

Team members - @mjung @augustinas.paukstys Maher & @silvio

As the name implies team MassiveData aimed to find a solution to handling the largest volumes of data between platforms while ensuring efficiency and scalability.

Their concept was to break up the data sets in batches.

See it in action:

SPOILER ALERT: This team convinced the Hackathon Jury in the respective categories (Impact, Innovation & Feasibility) and took the trophies home as the winning team! BIG KUDOS to them! 🤩

Footprinter

Team members - @sergii.pryz@vasily.rodin @muhammad.jadoon

Current code generators do what they are intended to do. Yet, it’s extremely time-consuming to create new, custom templates with them. Achieving that implies a lot of documentation and an extensive learning curve. 

The team Footprinter aimed to create a simplified way of converting code to template and back to code.

Check it out:


Initiator

Team members - @raycoulstock @sven.ommer @LukasB & @julius.wortmann

Team Initiator asked themselves this question: How do we add a new store easily as a developer, and as part of a DevOps process?

The current process involves adjusting config files, generate new code, and additional back-office activities. They wanted to speed things up - all from the command line.

Their concept involves a new application that would make the adjustment to the Spryker project automatically out of its command line.

Take a look:


SprykerDeck

Team members @dennis_bluemer @schoenfeld@David Wischner, & @marco.kaiser

Creating a great developer experience is key, and the team SprykerDeck wanted to push the existing boundaries within Spryker, going beyond existing code generators, co-pilots, kits, etc.

So why not have Spryker run on a SteamDeck and prove you can run Spryker Experience on every device?
