45% of those who are homeless in San Francisco have a cellphone. People who are fortunate enough waste and throw out stuff all the time. Why don't we connect those who are homeless to people who have extra digitally?
What it does
An Uber-like app that connects an in-need person to a donor (instead of a driver to customer).
How I built it
Android JAVA. Server Built in JAVA using Jersey, Tomcat, and Digital Ocean.
Challenges I ran into
Dependency issues in the maven build for the server application took a few tedious days to resolve. In those days, seemed like we were not moving forward at all. But powering through it, really helped us in the end.
