Obviously not all the tasks that need to be done for setting up a webshop can be done in a hackathon. For instance, we already purchased the cooking oils. We wanted the hackathon teams to use their creative freedom for their tasks, so we limited the rules and restrictions. In the end, this is project of all of us. We created the following teams:
The content team: This team took on the content for the webshop. They were working on making the product descriptions and on the design of the website.
The Shopify team: The Shopify team completely set up and configured the Shopify environment. They took care of the integration with OIL, on which the next team was working.
The OIL team: This team worked on setting up the OIL environment and the connection with the TAS, our Tables Assisted Sales app. The TAS is the perfect way to create orders in our physical store.
The marketing team: Last but not least, our marketing team. They created a complete marketing strategy and plan to promote our store.
