We sought out to create an application that helps to bridge food and housing insecurity on college campuses. This is done through an interactive web application that allows students to create odd jobs for fellow students.
What it does
The web application allows for students or U of M affiliates to post jobs, big or small, on a global platform along with reward offers, contact information, desired skills, and location. Students can easily search for a job that fits their strengths and brings financial relief
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
First, we barely had any background in web development and spent a great amount of time learning the basics. Second, the framework we chose and the template we used were somehow confusing and we had difficulty finding references.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We figured out how to get a web app working to solve a real-world problem.
What we learned
What's next for Hyfix
Our goal is to scale it to other universities and connect individuals within communities. We plan to add more user features/functions, such as implementing a more responsive design, better CSS styling, and developing a mobile application.
