TUI & Bedfordshire University Hackathon 2018

The theme for this years TUI / Bedfordshire University hackathon is In-Resort Experience. In other words - based around the kinds of services and products that TUI - its in-resort suppliers and partners - supply to its customers while they are actually on holiday.

For several of this years scenarios - you will need the data shown in the appendix below. Whilst this is typical of the kinds of in-resort products & services TUI offer (known as ancillaries) - this list has been significantly simplified and reduced. In particular, the pricing scheme below bears no relation to the one actually in use at TUI.

As this years hackathon is 1 day (24 hours) in length, the complexity of the scenarios has been reduced accordingly to reflect this change.

As always - the choice of scenario(s), tools, testing & design techniques and language(s) is left to each team.

It is perfectly acceptable (even desirable) for some of the elements in your solution to be 'faked', for example: the 'app' mentioned throughout could be a simple command line program, user interactions could be randomised to simulate actual situations and so on.

Happy hacking!

For those adventurous, talented, exceptional, or plain crazy - the following scenarios are designed so they can be combined together:

  • checkout + inventory
  • inventory + payment
  • checkout + inventory + payment

Another option is for multiple teams to work together on all 3 of these scenarios, providing a seamless integration between them and offer a single - unified - solution.
