The elderly are more and more isolated because of COVID and we created this application to help them communicate.
What it does
It connects elderly or anyone who wants to talk with volunteers.
How we built it
We used Flutter and Firebase for the application and Squarespace for the website.
Challenges we ran into
Firebase wasn't cooperating in some parts, and we had a tough time mastering newer languages like Flutter and earlier, React.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We gotten close to finishing an MVP, and as first or second time hackathoners, that's a good start.
What we learned
Time management is key, and also create mini prototypes to make it easier to conduct feasibility tests.
What's next for Connections With Others
More robust usage of Firebase, training ML algorithm to predict when most volunteers should be present on the application.
