We were inspired by the food truck outside the Microsoft building during Los Altos Hacks. We were kind of sad that our previous project didn't work out very well, but we realized that the food truck had food readily available for us, because they were called. We then thought of how our high school campuses are open, allowing students during lunch and free periods to go get food and such outside of campus. We thought it would be a good idea to have instead of a giant mass of people swarming the nearest restaurant, we could have people take orders for each other. It was a win-win situation in our eyes.
What it does
Our web application allows students to request food and view orders from their classmates. We used the Twilio API to send text messages to the students who order and to notify them of their order status, as well as to the "Dashers".
Challenges we ran into
Before we started CampusDash, we tried a project with the Edison board. We ran it to several issues while connecting the board to the command line.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of our password and email address verification, our Twilio API integration, and the CSS design.
What's next for CampusDash
The next step for CampusDash would be to create a chat room with the orderee and the student picking up the order. We would also like to format with different orders and delete the orders after a while.
