"The difference between a dream and a goal, is that a goal has a timeline." Catalyzed by the keynote speech for the opening ceremonies of TheLadyHacks, PushMe.me strives provide a social productivity platform for users to keep track of goal progress and collectively achieve goals. Ultimately, individuals and groups are encouraged to maximize productivity.
What it does
User can create an account and track individual and/or group goals. Individuals can keep track of personal tasks. Groups can encourage each other to complete tasks by sending members inspirational memes randomly generated by the website.
Challenges I ran into
The biggest challenge was the steep learning curve of dealing with so many languages/templates that use HTML/CSS and unifying them together. It was also difficult connecting the Front End to the Back End.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud of being able to produce a project that is demo-able. I am also proud of our group for persevering through the fatigue and anxiety of de-bugging. Ultimately, our product came together very well.
What I learned
We learned how to collaborate, work with new languages, and use in-class concepts in real-world applications.
What's next for PushMe.me
Different modes of PushMe.me will be designed to cater to different work audiences. For example, in place of sending memes, we can send inspirational quotes/other media for groups that are mental-health-aware. Alternatively, if we are addressing the workplace, we can send positive, professional media. Having multiple modes caters to a wider target market and ensures the "encouraging messages" are effective relative to the audience.
