#Kyma, #Hackathon, #Cloud, #SAPCX, #CCV2
December is here and Tis’ the season! This year SAP Customer Experience was in the spirit for some hacking and innovation! Across four locations, Munich, Gliwice, Montreal and Boulder, we brought together 85 SAP developers for 2 days of hacking crazy < delete > imaginative solutions involving Kyma (open-source project) and CCV2 (Commerce Cloud Version 2). This hackathon event gave a chance to developers that had never worked with both in combination a chance to discover what is possible.
Our SAP developers were split into 16 teams that worked on developing their ideas in a cloud environment. Developers hacked their way through several Kyma features including Portal, Lambdas, Eventing, Tracing and Debugging. Teams also used Docker and Kubectl to deploy to Kyma’s Kubernetes cluster as well as our CCv2 Accelerator.
Developers enjoyed the opportunity to work in teams of their choice, innovating their ideas and finally conducting demos and presentations. This being part of SAP’s dedication to our developer’s ideas and individual growth. Recognizing our developers for their unique contributions and filling them with a strong sense of purpose.
That together with providing a fun, flexible and inclusive work Environment!
Winning teams from each location were selected by an audience vote, with the most votes being the 2018 Kyma hackathon winner of ther respective location. High levels of engagement, plenty of fun, food, drinks and cool prizes – everything that is about Kyma and CCv2 Hackathon 2018.
