on May 15th and 16th, 2011 brought out some serious talent to DocuSign's new office in downtown San Francisco. For 2 days, developers took a shot at the $25K purse in 3 categories; consumer, enterprise, and mobile.
My app, SocialSign, was based on the T-Mobile Fave 5 campaign:
- Select 5 Facebook friends
- Sign an unlimited voice/text contract through DocuSign
- Merchants manage the contract in Salesforce.
I admittedly spent about 75% of the hackathon working with the Facebook app canvas and Salesforce Sites APIs, which probably explains why SocialSign placed as runner-up in the consumer category (other developers got far more creative with the actual Docusign API).
In the end, it was a great opportunity to demonstrate the feasibility of conducting social commerce through Facebook using Salesforce CRM to manage contacts, orders, and contracts. Thank you DocuSign for hosting such a great event!
