Munich Team wins the Hyperloop Pod Competition
TNG was the first sponsor of the TU Munich's Hyperloop team. The first ideas for participation in the competition run by SpaceX and Elon Musk go back to autumn 2015. The efforts of the student team, involving up to 30 students, were rewarded with victory in the competition and the prizes for "fastest pod" and "best performance in flight". Neither the strong competition from Delft and MIT nor the heavy rain and customs' confiscation of the batteries could prevent the win. We congratulate the team and look forward to the talk at the next Big Techday!
Replacement of a Legacy-Web-Application
We supported a client with an online platform in the development of a website, using ES6, React and Fluxible with high test automation. The backend employs a microservice architecture with Scala, Kafka and MongoDB. After several months of development, the legacy version of the top entry page was replaced by a newly developed page with responsive design.
TNG gave an interview on the topic Digital Transformation

Modern Customer Portal for eCommerce provider
Relaunch and migration of an eCommerce shop
We fully integrated an acquired eCommerce store into an existing Hybris shop system, migrating the complete customer account data, including addresses and vouchers. The goal: to allow expansion of the international customer base. The migration was performed without any need for downtime in the target shop, with the fully automated Hybris import running on multiple servers. By migrating the password-encoding algorithm, the migration was also transparent for customers. CMS content and individual icon sprites allow the new integrated shop to be individually branded.
B2B online shop relaunch
We completely rebuilt the online shop for a restaurant supplies wholesaler on the basis of the Hybris Commerce Accelerator, migrating existing data from the old system. This both eradicated technical debt and laid the foundations for a significant increase in non-food products. We supported this extension by adapting the various backend systems to the requirements of a very heterogeneous product range. The new online shop features completely reworked user experience with responsive design and navigation optimized for the product range, as well as improved maintenance of editorial content.
SW360 and FOSSology
SW360 is a software component catalogue application developed by TNG. Recently, we updated SW360 to Java8 and newer versions of Tomcat, Liferay, Thrift and others. We made code and deployment ready for publication on github and developed new features.
Also the open source license scanner FOSSology has been further improved. For parts of it, we cooperated with the Linux Foundation.
