As soon as we had read the Bloomberg`s challenge, we knew that this task was the one we were going to choose. As charity had always inspired us, we are happy that we managed to create something (even if it is very basic) that could help the community in some way.
What it does
Mainly, it is a small website with a landing page that has a colorful button that leads the one who press it to a random donation page of a charity case. It has a short description that (we hope) might encourage people to help those in need.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
As mentioned in the first part of the "story", we were inspired by Bloomberg's challenge, so this is the one we tried to relate to. To be honest, it also seemed to be the easiest one for people that are not used to go to hackathons.
Accomplishments that we are proud of
It is our first submission (yay). We are proud that we learned some basic java-script. The biggest thing we done was posting the project on the internet, using Domain.com.
What we learned
What's next for Community Challenge
Our original idea was a little bit more challenging. We wanted to create a "like it or not" charity application, but we realized that we do not have enough knowledge to implement it. The project itself caught our attention, so we will try to redesign our page.
