This project may be described as a "tinder for finding study buddies."
What it does
Users enter their name, course CRN, and contact information. The program automatically pinpoints users' locations and offers them a display of nearby users studying for the same class. Users can then choose to connect with users they see. If the other user accepts, their contact information would be sent to each other.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Matching the working prototype with the ideal visual design was very challenging given the limited time.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are really proud of the goose-themed Gaggle brand and how it cleverly evokes the feeling of a certain major tech company....
What we learned
What's next for Gaggle
With some modification of its visual components, Gaggle can become an extremely user-friendly service that can really be put to use. A mobile version is also an exciting possibility that suits the user base and functions of this application.
