What it does
It allows volunteers to select legs of road trips for pets, as they make their way from a sourcing shelter or home to their new forever homes.
How we built it
Renata worked on the front-end. Rory worked on the back-end.
Challenges we ran into
Rory was challenged to keep updating the REST API with enough reasonable-but-fake data to keep Renata occupied developing the front-end.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud we pulled off what we were able to...without killing each other!
What we learned
This was Renata's first hackathon, and Rory's second hackathon...so we're getting lessons in keeping each other entertained and motivated, while simultaneously trying to enjoy the other aspects the hackathon had to offer.
What's next for Happy Paws
Good question! We would like to setup authentication, add forms to be able to create/update/delete pet, volunteer, and trip information, and add a "upcoming trips" reporting feature.
