How we built it
We built it in entirely in React-Native, as we wanted the application to be cross platform without the need for two native codebases.
Challenges we ran into
The biggest challenge was the sheer amount of work required to create the application in 12 hours. We ended up having to a lot more work that we orginally planned.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Going into this, we barely knew react-native, and creating a login screen for a previous project had taken us a week. Being able to finsih an entire project in an unfamiliar language was a phenomenal accomplishment in our minds.
