Students make small purchases every day, ranging from groceries to fast food. We integrated modern web design with a simple interface to create a platform aimed at helping to encourage better investing habits.
What it does
As our title suggests, we reward users for making many small decisions by aggregating the small amounts of change they build up and suggest investment opportunities to help grow their assets.
How we built it
Frontend - HTML and CSS with Bootstrap, all rendered with Handlebars.js Backend - node.js with AJAX, Blockstack, Alpha Vantage, Capital One Nessie, Google Cloud Vision, and JQuery
Challenges we ran into
Integrating all the APIs elegantly was a difficult logistical challenge
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Mastering asynchronous functions to perform our OCR with Google Cloud Vision Hosting a local node.js server when FTP with Domain.com failed to be a viable option
What we learned
We gained experience with creating requests and managing and integrating APIS
