Couple questions for you, dearest reader. Do you like beer? Want the chance to go to Munich, Germany? Attending one of our Series hackathons in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Boston, Brooklyn, London, Los Angeles, Manhattan, Montreal, San Francisco, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Tel Aviv, Toronto, and Zurich?
If you answered yes to any of the above, I’d highly recommend reading the rest of this blog post. Cause SPHERE.IO threw in a little somethin’ somethin’ to our 2015 Global Hackathon Series. Intrigued?
Before we get to that, lets fill you on why SPHERE.IO is so cool. They live & breathe e-commerce, with their own API that gives you the power to build and connect awesome e-commerce applications for any channel or device that you want (with super-speed!) on one central platform for all your product, inventory, customer and transaction data. Impressed? We thought so.
Looking to design a unique shopping experience for your product? SPHERE.IO’s got yo back. And they’re German, so you know everything’s gonna work perfectly.
And these guys know how to come up with a solid hackathon challenge too.
Online shopping these days lacks humanity, that mom-and-pop store personality is nowhere to be found. SPHERE.IO wants to change that, and their challenge to you is to hack something that makes commerce fun again. Bring in personality and fresh ideas to come up with a way to make online shopping more individual as well as effective.
Create a personal shopping experience for web, smartphone, tablet or point of sale that might or might not include IoT, wearables, beacons, voice and motion control or any other technology you could think of – let off your steam and splurge your creativity!
And now, the prizes.
They’ll be giving away up to $ 25.000 credits to the SPHERE.IO platform for the most awesome hack in every city. On top of that, they are inviting the best team from the cities they are attending (those ones at the beginning of this blog post) to join SPHERE.IO at Oktoberfest in September in Munich. Flights, accommodations, and of course beer, all included.
This could be you.
