Inspiration

Using alarm clocks are too much of a pain (and too loud!) . Stopwatches are also annoying and who has time to input things into their alarms. With IT IS TIME, you can set mini reminders of things you need to do. keep forgetting to pick up laundry? How about a yo to get that laundry. Forgot the cat at the cat center? YO, you need to get your cat. With this reminder tool, never forget the cat again!

How it works

Type in your username and select a time you want a reminder. Then, one of our accounts will send you a Yo stating that it is time for whatever you had in mind.

Challenges we ran into

During the construction we ran into some problems with heroku and postgresql not playing well with each other. Once we realized out mistake, we had some misunderstandings of the yo api which caused some confusion on what we were able to do. This lead to a smaller version of the production of what we wanted to create in the beginning. Another challenge we ran into was the heroku scheduler was too long for our application and with a way to create a cron job, we had to have a interesting workaround in order to the the app to reference a database every half minute.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We are proud that we were able to use the Yo api in the construction of this project. We out proud that we were able to have a Yo app that can constantly yo someone which could help people too concentrated on work get some of their daily life things completed.

What we learned

We learned how to use different technologies and how different technologies interacted with each other such as django, postgresql and heroku. We also learned more about posting through using the YO api and learned a different way to use a combination of these technologies.
