We hit a pothole on the drive into Clemson and are really tired of them not being corrected. We thought there has to be a better to let Clemson University know about pot holes and various maintenance requests in. Even better, what if we had a crowd sourcing option to let Clemson know what we thought was more important.
What it does
CUFixIt allows users to take a photo of the grievance, automatically collect the coordinates of the event, and shows the recent postings for maintenance to fix.
How I built it
CUFixIt was built with Node.JS, phpMyAdmin, HTML, and CSS.
Challenges I ran into
Data base management was the biggest issue on this project. Also, this was our team's first time using Node.JS for a serious project.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We have a somewhat working mobile app.
What I learned
We decided we do not want to go into Web Development after graduation. We also learned how big of a pain data base management can be, how sometimes it may easier to build from the ground up instead of working from a template, and to always have fun while hacking away at new ideas.
What's next for CUFixIt
Getting a solid working, white-box tested prototype for a live demo!
