As young wayfarers, we all have the will to explore the world surrounding us with a limited budget. Suppose we have a two week break at work, we are considering going for a 10 days long journey across Europe, visiting various countries, in a cost efficient manner. As budget protection is our first priority, the order of the countries we travel to should not matter at all. The web app Skyscanner is a handy tool when booking the cheapest flights, but there we have to specify the order of the countries we are willing to visit, and therfore we cannot find the cheapest route unless we try each permutation of the cities we want to visit. Our project seeks to find a solution to this problem, we aim to create a fast, user-friendly web application that uses live data to serve with up-to-date information and help travellers find the best deals.
What it does
As the user arrives to our web app, several arguments of the journey can be specified, namely: -The soonest depart and the latest arrive date possible -What countries will be visited and how many days will be spent in each country (therefore the length of the whole trip is given as well) What it outputs is the cheapest route that fulfills the given conditions.
How we built it
-We created mockups -Then a clickable design and a dev plan -We built it
Challenges we ran into
-Distracting fidget spinners -Wifi shortages
Accomplishments that we're proud of
-We have created an MVP -The code did not brake
What we learned
