T-Mobile in partnership with Elastic Path is hosting the "Hacksgiving - Future of Digital Commerce" hackathon at the T-Mobile headquarters in Bellevue November 17-18, 2018. We invite fresh and seasoned developers alike to join us to invent the future of Digital Commerce, while mingling with our technologists, product folks and talent scouts.

With a wide range of new and disruptive technologies, from blockchain to machine learning and artificial intelligence, IoT to Bots, making an entry into Digital Commerce, the opportunities to transform the future of Digital Commerce are limited only by your imagination.

Whether you’re into business, data, or design, we want you to come learn something new, and lend your own creative energy to making amazing things. At the end of the day, the ideas that change what we see tomorrow come from all of us.

Use your smarts, creativity and innovation to come up with a demo or app to demonstrate your vision for what these technologies can do for Digital Commerce.

T-Mobile will also make available its own open source Jazz Serverless platform and test versions of our e-commerce APIs, so you can optionally integrate actual T-Mobile products! Use of these services is not required.


Anyone 18+ who is registered on-site is able to attend.


  1. Your submission must have a title, description, image, and all team members associated to the project in order to be eligible.
