We were inspired to create this java tool because many times, when trying to make plans with friends, our schedules do not line up.
What it does
With this tool, we can easily see the blocks of time in which both members are available, allowing for ease in creating plans. This tool takes in the calendars of two people, and returns a list of times in which both members should be available or free based off of their own personal calendars.
How we built it
We created a java implementation which takes in raw data inputs in accordance to the schedules events in ones' day.
Challenges we ran into
Some challenges we ran into were converting singular single minutes into standard time, we also had to find a way to convert user inputs into data that our implementation could use to determine the correct blocks of free time.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to clearly show or identify the free blocks of time between two people. We were also able to take in raw user data and converted these inputs into variables that our implementation was able to work off of and understand.
What we learned
In spite of our current situation, we were able to effectively design, implement and test our tool as a group, which gives us an idea of what we could expect from our future careers. We also learned how to effectively succinctly design and create our code in a way that others would be able to understand.
What's next for Free Time Project
Design a website with an interactive calendar or user interface that clearly shows the blocks of free time in an aesthetic manner
