People who are killin' it
What it does
This app is for posting photos with a caption of people who are enjoying life, working hard, and killing it around our community with the purpose of entertainment and acknowledgement of positive actions.
How we built it
Android Studio for android development. Simperium for storage of image metadata. Picasso for image caching. Imgur for image uploading and hosting.
Challenges we ran into
A silly missing driver kept us from building it on an actual android device.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
First ever attempt at using android UI elements, any kind of data base, and procedural uploading to cloud storage.
What I learned
All of it, we started from a ground level understanding of the software at the beginning of the hackathon.
What's next for Killing It
If it gains enough traction, it could be a popular social app, in which case we would need a fully fledged database and our own image hosting along with user identification. We could make geographical feeds to move it to a community level and manage abusive content.
