I was grateful enough to take part in this years Developer week hackathon in San Francisco. Being my first hackathon outside of a work environment, I didn’t know what to expect.
I quickly found myself nestled in a corner with a group of very poised engineers looking for a product designer. Safe to say, I had found my home.
Together we found that concessions are a thing of the past, and on-demand ordering is becoming more and more realistic across most commerce verticals. We decided to start small and build a world class experience around converting people currently out of their seats into crowdsourced delivery vehicles of concession items for a monetary or equal value exchange.
Together we built about 60% of the application, had a working data model, a working backend, working commerce integration, and both the buying and purchasing experiences running locally in under 24 hours.
It was personally enlightening to see what five strangers could build when sitting together, collaborating, and sharing information.
