How I built it
FusionFabric.Cloud (FFDC), API - block , unblock , transfer VUE, CSS, LESS, HTML, JAVASFRIPT, SPRING, AUTH
Challenges I ran into
Team faced a lot of challenges, since the technology that we've used was not familiar at all to the team. Team learned to use new technologies such as FFDC and GUI and VEU only during the short time of the Hackathon. Team work and corporation was impressive, team joined forces for the hackathon mission and work was divided by all team members. Mohammad worked on the back-end, Chen worked on the front-end, Shira worked on the GUI, Boaz worked on the video and Gila worked to identify the APIs, design and business/commercial aspects.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Connecting to FFDC, send requests and get responses.
What I learned
Learned a lot. what is FFDC, how to use it, business beyond online shopping payments etc.
What's next for Pay us later
Beta version will only allow customer to shop when they have the fund. Next ORP version will suggest a short term loan to allow purchasing without available fund. In addition, we will make agreements with banks to suggest the ORP as payment method.
