Vikas was in Yellowstone over his summer break. He encountered multiple difficulties with planning and scheduling, especially since his family knew absolutely nothing about Yellowstone.
He yearned and he yearned, for an app that would whisk away his issues. But all he got, was a tissue. Now comes a contender, all alone. Ready to be more than just bone. Oh code and code did Vikas and Jason. Time, the eternal guardian being the foremost frustration. Out of this HackMIT companionship, did rise a dayTrip.
What it does
Allows the user to book an entire trip, flights and hotels included.
How we built it
Android Studio - Kotlin, MVC, Single Activity Design Pattern
Challenges we ran into
Azure. Azure lacked documentation in some places, and other times wasn't giving enough logs.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Adopting and rigorously following industry standard Android guidelines. Creating an entire API from the ground up with no prior experience in API creation.
What we learned
mBaaS is hard.
What's next for dayTrip
Finishing up features, adding more polish, deeper integration with Azure (to make use of Cognitive Services).
