We thought about how young adults leaving High School are usually not taught enough about managing their finances. We hope that this application could help people improve their spending habits and better manage finances.
What it does
This application is designed to help people increase their financial literacy. There is a calculator to help manage expenses and an interactive fiction game to test knowledge of financial literacy
How we built it
We built the site using NodeJS, the Pug templating engine (formerly Jade), Bootstrap, and we deployed the game on Heroku and Google Cloud.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Getting the app deployed and to a usable and presentable point is something we are proud of. We hope a polished product will be able to be useful for people to track their finances.
What we learned
What's next for Financial Literacy App
Implementing database support so users can save their calculated budgets and use the application as a way to help better manage finances.
