Veterans have long since fought a battle in both combat and in civilian life. Returning vets often don't get the chance to jump start their career or business. A great solution would be to allow veterans to come together on a platform to be able to sell their product or service.
What it does
Our website is an e-commerce website that allows the ability for any willing veteran to apply to become a vendor on the e-commerce site. This site will also introduce the idea of cryptocurrency to the new vendors, as it can accept Bitcoin as several Altcoins.
How we built it
We built this website by using the e-commerce platform Magento and created a site that allows several different vendors to access one single site, as well as many progressive types of payment.
Challenges we ran into
Our main challenges was the learning curve to run a web-server's database on our local machines, as well as experiencing total database loss.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Overall we're proud of the that we managed to pull through the total database loss and created a fully functioning e-commerce site that is dedicated to veterans.
What we learned
Throughout the entire weekend, we learned how to cooperate as a team to accomplish a single goal and the work on our ability to get back on our feet after many frustrating hours.
What's next for Shamhack2018
Perhaps we can set our eyes on bigger and better goals, especially with our feet now wet.
