Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, news channels begin to spread awareness to get some emergency products but due to lockdown in almost all countries, it became difficult for everyone to go out and buy themselves emergency goods. As food delivery apps/software collaborates with local restaurants to deliver food, the same way, we came up with an idea, following the same principle, to deliver needy products to the users! So, we decided to work on a website and an app that solves problems of many, also within a day.
What it does
COV-Urgency is an all-in-one emergency product delivery software that delivers needy products to the users. Some of its features are:
- Delivers products within a day
- Ensures safety when delivering product; zero contact delivery
- Providing all the necessities asked by the user
How I built it
- The website was created using bootstrap studio
- MongoDB is used to store user data
- Android app was made using Kodular
- Used google as a source of images
Challenges I ran into
Different time zones: We have a completely diverse team. Teammates belonged to different time zones like IST and EST. It was hard to collaborate. So, we decided to divide work and asked to complete it at a given time and then the final product was combined at last. We also had some issues building our website as we did not know advanced HTML and CSS so it was a learning process throughout.
New to backend programming: we were new to backend programming, and we got to learn basic knowledge about backend and we hope we would learn more in the future.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Enhanced our skills with frontend programming
Tried Backend programming for the first time, I would love to learn more in backend and would try to implement in real-life projects
COV-Urgency may employ people from different parts of the world to deliver products.
COV-Urgency may increase the profit of local store owners by collaborating with them and by bringing their products online.
What I learned
Got to know about people from different parts of the world.
Used MongoDB for the first time as a database
What's next for COV-Urgency
The website needs some improvements like UI improvement and backend fixes.
We would introduce iOS app for COV-Urgency so that more people can get the benefit.
We would try to Collaborate with some local stores so, we may implement the project in real life as soon as possible
We would try to employ people as much as possible so that it would we beneficial for society.
