Our Story

We were frustrated by long lines at the grocery store, waiting for endless minutes in the aisles. In our desperation, we turned to technology as the panacea for all our woes. From this crucible of ingenuity, out came PepperJack: the solution to innovate old-fashioned shopping for the modern millenium.

Our Process

We used many different tools for this, from Flask for the backend, DynamoDB for databases, AWS for server hosting, Bootstrap for prettification, and Kevin Kiggs for bugfixing. We also used Edamam API for nutritional info, and OpenCV + PyBarZ for barcode recognition. We carefully planned every step ahead of time (read: we make one diagram), and we wrote extensive documentation on our code (read: we commented out any code that didn't work.)
