Finding new teammates during a hackathon is challenging for everyone. So, our team tried to find a solution for it
What it does
CollabCircle is a website that lets the user to find teammates according to their interest. CollabCircle asks user to sign up and add their interest like their hobbies, skills and other favorable thing. In return, CollabCircle will provide list of users with similar interests. Also keeping in mind, during hackathon, it lets teammates to entertain themselves during hangouts when physically apart by using a Portable Piano by our team.
How I built it
We used node.js for backend programming and algorithms that makes the project 'Unique'
Used Bootstrap Studio for frontend designing which gives the project most 'Unique' User Interface
Used Arduino UNO for the portable piano which gives the user 'Unique' way of entertainment.
Challenges I ran into
Different Time Zones: Every teammate belongs to different part of the world which was difficult for all of us to give time to the project
Unfamiliar with some software: No one of us has equal skills in software development so, we divided work and tried to do as much as possible.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Got to know about hardware development
Got experience with software development
Got to know more about cultures of different countries
What I learned
Got experience with bootstrap studio.
Tried to work with node.js for first time
Improved my skills at website development
Working on Arduino UNO improved my knowledge with hardwares
What's next for CollabCircle
We will try to make Mobile app that will let user to contact with the team anywhere
We will make a chat area in the project where users may chat with their teammates
Will use Machine Learning to improve team finding
Introduce a software through which user can get tutorials for beginners, music notes by music genre.
