Bullying has been in the media a lot lately and sometimes it has tragic consequences. I want to help kids get a better understanding of how to deal with difficult situations and also help others who are being bullied by being compassionate and empathetic.
What it does
It takes the child through a serious of levels across a number of locations where the are faced with yes or no questions related to bullying. The locations currently included are in the lunchroom, on the bus, and at the park.
How I built it
I used nodejs and aws lambda.
Challenges I ran into
I've never coded with Node.js or used AWS Lambda but I have JS experience and the learning curve wasn't so bad with Lambda on the count of the documentation and easy to follow tutorials.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I'm happy to have gotten to finally use lambda and see what all the hubub is about. I'd also be very proud if my skill actually helps at least one kid deal with bullying in their life.
What I learned
Platitudes aren't always so black and white.
What's next for Bully Woolly
Adding more difficult levels and locations.
