Our group's shared experience regarding finding nearby community service opportunities to meet our high school requirements was difficult, especially in finding ones that suited our interests. We as a team, wanted to reinvent the system in which students can find relevant service opportunities.

What it does

LindaHand takes takes user inputs and preference to curate personalized lists of organizations that best suit what the user is looking for. As an organization looking for help, you may register yourself along with a brief bio and list of tags that suit you to be entered into our database.

How we built it

Back end was done with Java, and the Front end was done with Javascript, HTML, and CSS

Challenges we ran into

We had trouble getting GitHub to work on all of our computers and with our IDE's, and we also had trouble getting the Front and Back end to communicate. Specifically, our front-end developers were totally new to the discipline so building a website and learning to connect the front-end code with the back-end was a challenge that we could have not have figured out if it wasn't for Mikel Matticoli so we at LindaHand would like to give a special thanks to him. Thanks Mikel!

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud that we were able to learn HTML and CSS and create a website of this caliber within 24 hours.

What we learned

HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

What's next for LindaHand?

Our dream is to make LindaHand a service used by organizations and school districts all over the country. To do so, we would like to iron out our storage constraints, always be working on innovating more efficient algorithms to connect users with organizations, and ultimately build our database of users by getting LindaHand out to the world!
