We built a tool that allows students to find opportunities build their professional portfolios, while helping start-up entrepreneurs build their products.
How it works
Our web app services as a hub for designers, developers and entrepreneurs to find one another and collaborate on a project.
The site is targeted towards:
- students looking for projects to build their portfolio
- start-up entrepreneurs looking for developers/designers
Challenges I ran into
We made use of MongoDB, Node.js and Angular.js, which are technologies that we do not have a lot of experience in. One of the challenges with working with these frameworks is uploading the photo to the database and wiring the backend services to the front-end.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Being able to come up with a pragmatic idea, while implementing it with most functionalities in 48 hours with a design.
What I learned
Planning out project phases and implementing them within a short period of time. Learning new tools to build a better web.
What's next for build.it
Adding functionalities and polishing the design. Making the site responsive and more interactive.
