One of the most common social deed people want to do is volunteering. However, not everyone finds the time to do so in their busy schedule. VolunteerYOU helps you find an opportunity in your free time and updates it on your calendar. We learned/built to use the google calendar API, how to dynamically render HTML using react , Analyze users profile and find volunteering opportunities for them. Furthermore, with a click of a button you can register for this opportunity and it automatically gets added to your calendar. The biggest challenge was to get our environment set up. We were trying to use a java back end and connect it to react front end . For this , we used spark. A major chunk of time was spent trying to set communication back and forth between react , spark and our java.
