We believed that many people where misinformed about covid rates in their area. This can lead to many unfavorable outcomes, so we decided to help solve this issue by providing real facts.
What it does
It gets a CSV file, provided by the CDC, that contains info on various covid stats and it puts it onto an elegant html page to then be served over internet.
How we built it
We used a node.js and express backend to integrate the html and CSV file. Front end used bootstrap and material UI design to create engaging user interfaces, UI has very sleek and modern design.
Challenges we ran into
Some challenges we ran into where: integrating html template and data and front end mini search engine that would find appropriate state.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were proud of finally combining the two halves (frontend and and backend), and having the finished product.
What we learned
We learned many things specific to coding like new modules and methods of handling technical issues, but we also learn and improved a-lot on collaboration and communicating within a team which we believe are very important skills.
What's next for Covid tracker
We hope to rollout new updates so that it can be more improved. We also hope to buy our own domain name and host it on our own server.
