People only download mobile apps when they intend to use it often. I was asked to help a team of Hatch employees develop a web-based solution that avoids maintaining multiple different operating systems that a phone may rely on.

What it does

Identifies the route, location of the trolley, and the direction it's going in (real-time).

How I built it

Used a combination of front end web technologies (HTML/CSS, JS) and integrated Google Maps API.

Challenges I ran into

Implementing the Google Maps API into a CMS such as Weebly

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Being able to do a freelance project for an engineering consulting company like Hatch.

What I learned

Many different programming technologies (and web technologies specifically) can work together in interesting ways!

What's next for Hack Saugeen

Continuous improvement on the web app, so that it can potentially be used in this summer's tourist events.
