My experiences as a black software developer in tech and the challenges in being able to find opportunities.
What it does
Notifies candidate about tech job openings in a .5 mile radius while traveling in realtime
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into developing a way to simulate a demo and implementing this demo. The reason is due to it being location based so it required physical movement to demonstrate the notifications that ring into the phone. It is a partial augmented reality application so this made it difficult.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are extremely proud of coming up with an idea and implementing it overnight. We are also extremely that we have completed something that can become a value add to a major issue.
What we learned
We learned how to remain calm under time crunching pressure. We also learned a lot about new API's that are available.
What's next for GeoPie
launching to market! We are looking forward to improving and expanding the features of this application to our target audience
