I live with my aunt and she asks me about the number of covid19 cases in the United States almost everyday. In order to save time searching on Google, I have a solution for myself now.
How I built it
Using the api from covidtracking.com, I created a table which is used to display the overall information about the number of coronavirus cases in the United States.
Challenges I ran into
The Covidtracking team updates their API frequently and they are also adding some constraints to their API URL. I need to keep checking the website to see if it works and fix the API URL if anything wrong happens.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
This is my first website Ive ever built using Angular framework.
What I learned
Understood dependency injection concept. Utilized Google GeoChart to implement an interactive map. How components interact in Angular Framework.
What's next for Coronavirus In The US
After I made this website, my aunt asks me if there is any testing site nearby my place. I think I should add this feature into my website and some more information in regarding to how to protect yourself from getting infected.
