Inspiration

At our company anytime someone goes the extra mile we make it appoint to show our appreciation by either getting them a coffee or buying them a pizza if they work after hours.

We created this app to streamline this culture - anytime you want to challenge or are looking for someone to go the extra mile you offer a bounty on an issue.

What it does

We allow people to set bounty's on issues. So if someone does some obscure task or goes the extra mile - you offer them a good gesture, by default on the app we offer coffee, pizza, a hug, high 5 but this can literally be anything to encourage someone to really look into that issue.

Bounties can range from asking someone to compile a list of countries for you in JSON format for a coffee and the python dev in your company quickly scrapping wikipedia for you to earn that reward - to simply asking someone to figure out why your code isn't running

How I built it

We built the app in Javascript using Forge

Challenges I ran into

We had trouble with Forge tunneling and thus we had to rebuild the app with every change - hectic

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We were able to put something together

What I learned

A lot about Forge!

What's next for Bountify

Improving the application, fixing small bugs and trying it out with other teams.
