We think of some pretty deep things while on the toilet. Being able to share these thoughts and read others' was something we thought was cool.
What it does
Deep s**t allows you to share and read others' deep thoughts.
How we built it
We wanted to explore Parse. As a result, we focussed on leveraging this backend to store and retrieve our data.
Challenges we ran into
Parse's documentation was not as detailed as we'd hoped; we often ran into confusion with concepts and this slowed us down considerably.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Being able to successfully finish the hack -- 3/4 of the team were first-time hackers
What we learned
Leveraging Parse to store and retrieve data, as well as designing with text-heavy elements and lots of white-space.
What's next for Deep Shit
Getting our friends to join the platform and share their deep thoughts. Gathering feedback and refining the UI/UX is as well. We enjoy the simplicity -- future features may be in the works.
