too many users
Finding a good place to live is time consuming and hard. Let's make it a little better.
What it does
It enables its users to transfer their lease on a very intuitive and simple platform thanks to high web technologies.
How we built it
We built it using Google App Engine and its built-in nosql datastore. All webpages are constructed in jsp allowing more exposure to the backend functionalities. User management comes with them as a package and thus it currently supports only google account users.
Challenges we ran into
We were working on different environments and the difference in our setup often broke the project setup and even the whole app..! Also, we had to learn new concepts to implement some of the essential features such as search, pagination, multiple file uploading, and dealing with web technology libraries to display the UI pretty.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Albeit it may seem ugly, our first prototype is out at 'leasetransfer.tech' and it has all the basic functionalities running that we intended to have from the beginning.
What we learned
We are learning from our painful mistakes: we should try our best to work in a same development environment. Also, we learned that McHacks16 is awesome.
What's next for leasetransfer
After users will have used it, we will verify their feedbacks and figure out where to improve and we will keep improving its UI and make it ready for bigger scale.
