Inspiration

Cooking is very time-consuming, and this makes it hard to eat healthy home cooked meals. There exist home cooks who have the resources and time to cook extra meals. Now, home cooked meals are easier to eat and home cooks

What it does

Foober allows talented home cooks to prepare and sell meals to the local community. Home cooks post meals that customers can browse on the Foober app. When a customer orders a meal, the meal is delivered to them through the UberRush API.

How we built it

We built the app using a Java Play and MongoDB backend, with a HTML, Bootstrap CSS, and JavaScript frontend. The app utilizes the UberRush API to deliver cooked meals to hungry customers as quickly as possible.

Challenges we ran into

We decided upon a sophisticated and challenging layout, meaning that we learned a lot about formatting Bootstrap CSS. There was also a steep learning curve for learning the Java Play framework.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The app looks highly polished and sleek, and the idea has the potential to really help make a difference for under-appreciated home cooks and hungry communities everywhere.

What we learned

We learned how to use the Java Play framework and how to utilize Bootstrap CSS to make sophisticated app designs.

What's next for Foober

The next step would be to expand our app to add more opportunities for feedback. Additionally, we would implement a system to recognize particularly outstanding home cooks.
