We noticed that many donation pages don't have a type of incentive, so we wanted to create a project that includes an incentive.
What it does
Bail For Philly encourages donations with a leaderboard system as well as graphs showing unfairness.
How we built it
This web application is using flask, a python framework. The database used is SQL server and pandas was used to create the graphs.
Challenges We ran into
There were multiple times where we ran into errors which took a lot of time debugging. Time was the biggest challenge!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This is the first time Kelly has submitted a project for a hackathon. We were successfully able to finish in the given time and develop what we intended to.
What I learned
We learned that it is crucial to take breaks and get some fresh air and not to code all the time.
What's next for Bail For Philly
It would be nice to have users actually able to donate to the Philadelphia Bail Fund.
