The supper order bot was born from a panic attack due to our lack of ideas. *Also because we order supper and find it troublesome to collate orders in a chat group.
What it does
It's a bot that allows any Telegram user to add items to a supper order, collate the total order. There's a reset function to restart the order. It can be found on Telegram (Supper Order Bot)
How we built it
It was built using python and telepot (python framework for Telegram Bot API) link
Challenges we ran into
Our team only worked with Java prior to this project, also being totally new to developing, we had a hard time learning a new language and framework. Frameworks and the tutorials attached are usually not beginner friendly. NUSIS
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We managed to self-learn and apply a new language, and created a working product.
What we learned
We found da wae.
