DiamondHack's React Workshop and categories! Buying locally grown food is good for the environment, local business, and your health!
What it does
Users can enter their zip code to search for businesses that sell local organic produce.
How we built it
Followed the React Workshop by DiamondHacks and used w3schools for additional features.
Challenges we ran into
Relatively new to coding so most of this was completely new to me. Thus, I struggled a bit with following the workshop, and especially with adding additional features--particularly positioning the slideshow (the arrows just would not go in the right place!), figuring out where to put code (which file?), and some careless mistakes (whoops, those double quotes were what was causing the error!).
Accomplishments that we're proud of
First time using React, making an actually somewhat useful project that looks decent :)
What we learned
What's next for Find Local Organic Produce
Making the slideshow change its information every day/week, allowing users to sort results by rating, visually showing which businesses are currently closed, etc.
