Inspiration

Our inspiration came from one of our members coming into contact with covid and being unsure about how to proceed and what all she could do. We created this website to be a source for people who are in a similar situation to be not in the same position as her and be prepared with their virus.

What it does

The website allows a user to create a profile and enter their symptoms that allows for them to track their progression with covid and be able to get suggestions on what they can do. Additionally, it allows them to connect with friends and track their progression with the virus and plan accordingly. Furthermore, it keeps the student up to date with the news on the virus as well as tracking the progression in Texas A&M.

How we built it

We built the site using React, Firebase (Google Cloud), Microsoft Azure, as well as GitHub.

Challenges we ran into

Some challenges that we ran into include being able to sign up users as well as being able to push and pull our code to share it amongst the team as having trouble with this took away some time and progress.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud of being able to create a website having 2 people that are new to hackathon and most being inexperienced in creating a website.

What we learned

We learned how to make a website using React as well as embedding other websites within ours.

What's next for BTHOC

We are hoping to connect with Tamu and specifically with the teachers to be able to inform them when their student has covid rather than having the student self report it which takes sometimes up to 30 minutes.
