As one member of the team grew up primarily in apartment complexes, it was realized that children growing up in apartments (who are more likely to be lower-income than those living in houses) are not able to experience the same sense of community that is cultivated in a neighborhood setting.
What it does
Kidoordinate lets guardians find other guardians living in apartment complexes nearby, and schedule playdates for their children. This is intended to foster a support network for both parents and children residing in apartments.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Determining how we could make the app secure while still allowing people to connect based on their interests
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Functional and takes into account factors like location (Google Maps API)
What we learned
Learned how to interact with Bootstrap, how to use Google Maps API
What's next for Kidoordinate
Allow calendar compatibility, allow multiple kids to be added for each guardian, sanitizing inputs, checking for playdate time conflicts, verification of address/apartment complex, notification of playdate request updates
