We wanted to make something that would help people to share their contacts and connect with people in a better, easier, and faster way, which motivated us to build this app.
What it does
It scans your face and pulls up every information it has about you which you added to it.
How we built it
We built it using the Google Cloud platform, Node JS, and MySQL.
Challenges we ran into
I would say working with Google Cloud platform was the hardest part as it was our first time working with it and it took us a while to figure things out. Also, it took us a while to figure out how to integrate everything and make a working model.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Coming with a zero knowledge in Google Cloud platform, it was quite a step for us to get familiar with it and make something with it which actually works, and when in the end, it actually worked, it gave us a sense of achievement. Also, we are proud that we could make something that will make people's life easier.
What we learned
We learned a lot while making the app. Not just working with new things, but also, figuring out ideas with some social impact and developing things that help others.
What's next for Face Place
We would say that we would try to make it better, and more updates as we get feedback and try to make it better.
