Inspiration

From nearly one day to another, the corona-crisis brought a lot of office-worker into the situation that they had to work from their home-office where they don't find a professional equipment. Professional equipment is essential because it enables them to work efficiently and ergonomically. On the other hand a lot of companies offices are orphaned and mostly very well equipped. But how can we bring these two parties together?

What it does

Our solution 'HomeBoi' acts as a marketplace where home-office workers can fastly find professional equipment and companies on the other side are able to make a little bit of money from their unused equipment.

How we built it

We built it using the TypeScript/JavaScript Stack based on nestJS in the back-end and Angular in th front-end. As for the persistency layer we use a PostgreSQL database. For deployment and runtime we use heroku.

Challenges we ran into

A big challenge was to find a makeable solution for the 48 hours hackathon. And, regarding the business model, we might have a change in the scope to focus more on the local area. Something like a search over the map for example to find local available office equipment might be a huge benefit.

Accomplishments that we’re proud of

A live and working Full-Stack Application featuring all basic functionalities, a nice marketing video and Basic UX Design within 48h with a very small team of 5 developers, 1 UX Designer and 1 Marketing Specialist.

What we learned

We learned that when we work together as a strong team, we can achieve very good solutions that empower the community in short time.

What’s next for Homeboi

Next we'd like to find encouraged people and companies that are willing to test and use our solution.

Features we are already planning to implement in the future:

  • Search near your location
  • Renting between private persons
  • Update user profiles
  • Follow company/user
  • Ratings
  • Social Media Login
  • and many more

Hello World,

kurzes Update von uns:

unser Grundgedanke: Corona hat viele Menschen ins Home Office verbannt. Viele klagen über eine schlechte Ausstattung. In den Büros vieler Unternehmen ist diese ungenutzt. Unsere Plattform bringt beide Parteien zusammen.

Natürlich steht der Anwender bei unserer Reise im Mittelpunkt. Wir gehen die Entwicklung über die Userjourney an. Was haben wir geschafft? • Das Fundament der Lösung steht!!!!! • Bei der Userjourney haben wir jetzt folgendes erreicht: o User anlegen o Der Anwender kann Produkte einsehen o Inserate erstellen und Status seiner Inserate

Für die Zahlenliebhaber: • Wir haben in Summe 15 Issues (1 davon Prio 2) • Abgeschlossen: 2 • In Arbeit: 3 • Offen: 10

Wird eine lange Nacht!
