SaM Solutions at Sitecore Hackathon 2021
On March 5, 2021, the team of Sitecore developers from SaM Solutions took part in Sitecore Hackathon — the annual online event organized by the community and supported by Sitecore. The event has brought together 95 teams from 28 countries.
The task was to build and submit a Sitecore module that best implements one of the following ideas for the Hackathon, within 24 hours:
- The best enhancement to the Sitecore Admin (XP) for Content Editors & Marketers
- The best enhancement to SXA
- Best use of SPE to help Content authors and Marketers
- Best use of Headless using JSS or .NET
Our team represented by Vadzim Papko, Vadim Birkos and Vitali Taleika (former SaM Solutions’ employee) has created Managed Synonyms Module — a solution for improving Sitecore search functionality. This is an efficient tool for searching synonyms on SOLR websites that can be integrated into Sitecore and can make the life of content editors easier.
With this solution, our guys compete for the victory in the “Best enhancement to the Sitecore Admin (XP) for Content Editors & Marketers” category.
The Hackathon winners will be announced at the Global Virtual Sitecore User Group conference (SUGCON Global) 2021.
Taking part in such events is highly beneficial for every participant: they can increase their name recognition, network with experts from all over the world and feel the community support. From a practical perspective, teams develop modules ready for Sitecore Market; thus, they contribute to the platform enhancement.
Our company has been developing Sitecore-based solutions for more than 10 years, and we have successfully completed dozens of projects. Among our clients, there are non-profit organizations, large real estate agencies, insurance companies, hardware manufacturers, etc.
