We wanted to provide jobs for students and give affordable babysitting

What it does

EasySitter connects local babysitters with parents at any time. Babysitters can simply check a box saying that they're ready to provide service(like uber). This site runs on a credit based system, so that parents don't have to immediately pay if they don't have the money at the moment or are willing to babysit themselves at another time to make up the credits. Basically, you can babysit or pay for credits. You can cash out or use the credits to buy babysitting service.

How we built it

We used HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript for the website. Most of the pictures are made through photoshop.

Challenges we ran into

The hardest part was implementing the GPS system. There were additional features from the google API that we did not need, and deleting them required us to understand the javascript better.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

All of the code aside from the GPS was written from scratch. I used guides from online and the helpers walking around to learn. This was my first time coding in HTML, CSS and Javascript. I'm proud that I was able to pick up the different syntax, and understand the code at the end.

What we learned

Aside from learning the syntax and work-ability of html css and javascript, we learned that in 48 hours a lot can be done.

What's next for EasySitter

EasySitter hopes to expand beyond LA when it gets bigger. We hope to have an efficient network of both babysitters and parents needing their services.
