Inspiration

We, as students, usually face this problem! Not Anymore

Have a great idea in mind, are excited in the beginning, start working on it, and then the graph goes on tending to zero. This trend shows a reasonable rate of creativity but a depleting rate of implementation. I have worked on several projects, the ones having the potential to become the next big startup, but they go in vain because sometimes a particular tech stack is not known, or you have made too many commitments that you forget the exciting ones. Also, after talking to people at our institution, people tend to complete things they have taken up when they have a partner whom they are accountable to. In these situations full of problems, what developers require is a platform for themselves, not just some random WhatsApp and Telegram groups, which are muted as time passes!

What it does

DevArmy serves as a platform where one can find people to collaborate on projects with #NeedSimran and #ProjectIdea. One can also find a partner to do Online courses with #NeedSimran. One can seek help about some topic with #NeedHelp and take advice with #NeedAdvice on which online course to take up and other stuff. In case someone doesn't have the means to work on an idea but desperately feels it should be introduced to people, we have #ProjectIdea to help. The platform aims to bring in #CodeReview, #DesignReview, and #LinkedInReview in the coming times. Remember--"We rise by lifting others" - Robert IngersollThe platform DevArmy aims to bring a platform for the developers to solve their problems. A platform by the Developers, for the Developers! What we call the members of the community is the "Soldiers." Soldiers seeking solutions use the language of #hashtags

Challenges Solved:

  1. How to find people for projects? Use #NeedSimran along with skills And Post your requirements clearly

Example-

I'm planning to build a Geeks Dating Site, I'm good at Frontend using React, Looking for someone to handle Backend, preferably college students.

NeedSimran

  1. How to Share Project Ideas? Use #ProjectIdea

Example-

  1. Geeks Dating Site #ProjectIdea
  2. Chatbot for career counseling #ProjectIdea We will try to bring up rewards and contests for the best ideas in the future!!!
  3. How to get help from others? Use #NeedHelp Tip- Make sure to be very specific

Example- I'm stuck with the Leetcode Problem, "Jewels and Stones".

NeedHelp

P.S. When you ask for help, make sure to help others also.

  1. How to seek advice/guidance from Mentors? (Future Implementation) Use #NeedAdvice

Ex- Is Javascript enough to crack Uber? #NeedAdvice Do backend engineers earn more than frontend engineers #NeedAdvice

  1. How to share some fantastic articles/posts/resources? Use #Resources.

Coming Soon…

  1. How to get my Code/Design Doc Reviewed? && Get LinkedIn Reviewed? Use #CodeReview & #DesignReview Make sure to add a link to the Google Doc(make it public) P.S. When you ask to review, make sure you help others also.

How I built it

The app is built using Flutter for frontend from Google and Django rest API hosted on Google Cloud.

Challenges I ran into

Even today, when many developers are using flutter, the BLoC logic Documentations and practical implementations are not present. Fewer tutorials are present on working with Django REST Api and flutter, which makes our work less efficient. Even the existing university pattern of education does not give proper guidance about modern technologies. Our Team tried leveraging the power of elastic search for the hack, but again, lack of Documentation was a significant issue.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I started with BloC design in flutter.

What I learned

Django Rest API, flutter apps widgets

What's next for DevArmy

Coming Soon…

How to get my Code/Design Doc Reviewed? && Get LinkedIn Reviewed? Use #CodeReview & #DesignReview Make sure to add a link to the Google Doc(make it public) P.S. When you ask to review, make sure you help others also. How to seek advice/guidance from Mentors? (Future Implementation) Use #NeedAdvice

Ex- Is Javascript enough to crack Uber? #NeedAdvice Do backend engineers earn more than frontend engineers #NeedAdvice Partnering with Hackathons serving as a platform for hackers to collaborate.
