Our objective is to assemble a web app that helps educate people to learn more about their potential neighborhoods. For example, learning the neighborhood’s Affordability, Job Availability, school’s education system, and the crime rates.
To build a web app that lessons the hassle of people moving to new neighborhoods.
Our Inspiration was that one of our team members had recently moved to a new town. At that time, they didn't know the neighborhood as well and was looking for the cheapest option. However, little did they know it wasn't the best option. Throughout the years, they were flooded with drunkards in front of their house in the middle of the night. Seemingly, their taxes were put to waste; the streets were filled with holes; the school districts weren't the finest.
How we built it:
We used HTML/CSS in order to develop the structure of the site while giving the touch of JS in order to make it work more remotely. We used the API from Google Cloud Platform in order for the users to use a map on our website regarding what neighborhood they are satisfied with.
Challenges we ran into:
Due to a lack of familiarity with front-end development, we watched several youtube videos and implemented the knowledge gained from the attended workshops during the hackathon in order to get done with "know your neighborhood" project.
Accomplishments that we're proud of:
What we learned:
-Learning new coding languages
-Came to appreciate the usefulness of GitHub
What's next for Know Your Neighborhood:
-More Statistical Data
