OVERVIEW

Digital media has enabled commerce to take root in new and unexpected places, both online and offline, making purchasing easily accessible for consumers. Physical shops may soon become obsolete considering that commerce now takes place widely virtually on social networks and content sites, and via scannable print ads, shopping wallets, and peer-to-peer business channels. With these widely available options brands can now engage with consumers in innovative ways than they have ever been able to before the advent of digital commerce.

But everything comes with a price tag. Merchants constantly have to be on their feet keeping up with new technologies that make the shopping experience effortless. They are also expected to adjust their strategies to accommodate consumer preferences for commerce, which may include different formats or new payment methods.

We are all aware that bringing such new ideas to fruition is a task that calls for strong technical expertise. With this hackathon we are trying to give developers a taste of what it feels like to work on a digital commerce project, which holds market potential to become a $50 billion business in 2018. We also aim to develop new ideas for businesses by bringing different thinking heads together. This would be a win-win for developers, businesses and customers.
