HackZurich

Motivation

HackZurich 2014 was the largest hackathon within Continental Europe at that time: 352 developers from all over Europe met in Zurich and created 101 successfully delivered applications. One of the workshop tracks included “Retail Innovation” – a workshop co-hosted by the Auto-ID Labs, Migros (Switzerland’s largest retailer) and GS1. Using retail APIs from GS1 and Migros that included product information, pricing information, product availability, ingredients, social reviews and CO2 impact of products as well as label information and generated user traces, a total of 15 mobile retail applications was created.
