Opportunity: Currently, students spend tons of hours and resources finding textbooks for their classes. Students either go to Barnes and Nobles and pay huge amounts of money for textbooks, or scour the internet in order to save some money in exchange for giving up their precious time. For an independent college student, the two most important things are arguably money and time. All around college campus, there are students looking for textbooks, but at the same time, what do students do with their old books? Drawing inspiration from the hectic Facebook group markets, we sought to create a more streamlined buying and selling interface for students to obtain textbooks from each other at a cheap price and at a low time cost.
What's next for mydtf.org: Next, we plan to host the domain and connect the program with our domain, mydtf.org, in order to put the website live, create accounts, and set up a timer for each bid function.
