Money is around us and is a huge part of society. As students and adults, we come across a main problem: what should we do with our money or how should we save. With this web application, there are multiple ways you can do with the money you use. Invest smartly or keep track of your budget. It’s important about the decisions we make because it can impact your future positively.
What it does
This web app contains 2 learning tools: learning about stock market and budget tracking. You can watch multiple tutorial videos for learning how to trade. There’s also one-on-one consultation with professional crypto traders to help you along the way. Along with these services, you can also learn at your own pace by reading articles or watching videos. The budget tracker is the 2nd learning tool to help you keep track of your spendings to make sure you aren’t overspending. This tool also gives advice on ways you can conserve your spending.
How we built it
We built the UX/UI application of the web app by using Figma. The code portion of this app was created by using HTML, CSS, and Python. This code has been uploaded to Github.
Challenges we ran into
Some of the challengers we ran into were figuring out what to put into our web app. There were so many great ideas we wanted to put, but as we collaborated through Zoom, we mentioned the main problems the society faces with finance and included them into our project. We also had difficulty with Python since some of us had little experience but we came through as a group and worked on it together.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The accomplishments that we’re proud of is that we all learned something new one way or another. Finance is something we all tried out for the first time and we learned a lot from researching and working on this web app.
What we learned
We learned how to make a website and prototype on Figma. We also understood the power of communication! We definitely experienced the challenges of working but we were able to overcome them.
What's next for Flow
In the future, we hope to connect Python to webpage using Flask. Our plan next is to build a mobile application that implements more features we brainstormed; like suggesting good websites for better understanding and easier access to users.
