For the very beginning we we're thinking of killing 2 birds with 1 stone and combining multiple sponsor challenges. During our brainstorming session at lunchtime we came up with this idea that combines Craneware a procedural game with AND Digital Hack Edinburgh Tourism Industry.
What it does
We are gamifying tourism in Edinburgh. Our app generates a scavenger hunt around the Edinburgh leading the tourist to Edinburgh's popular locations.
How I built it
We've split it between 1 person mainly doing database, 1 the back-end logic and 1 the front-end
Challenges I ran into
Django was a challenge to install on windows. Formatting the database was a pain. The debugging of the back-end simulation on a console application. Updating the point coordinates showing the player on the map
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We've coded the prototype
What I learned
