College students with too many tasks and too little time. We wanted to change that and make the world a better place by decentralizing p2p help.
What it does
Provides a medium for posting tasks and errands which anybody can take up for a reward, as determined by each individual poster/user.
How we built it
Front-end: HTML/CSS/Vanilla JS Back-end: node.js APIs used: Google Geocoding, Authorize.net, HERE.com
Challenges we ran into
Google's API literally crapping out and breaking our entire code. We set a delay timer to prevent this. Developing a full-stack project with little knowledge/experience in each step. Utilization of APIs we've never touched before. Communication between front/back-end due to APIs not working nicely together simultaneously.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Developing most of our vision into a reality in such a short period of time. Getting such a wide range of tools to work together simultaneously, as intended. Smoothly implementing new APIs we've never used before.
What we learned
Google's API can't handle more than 5 requests.
What's next for LIFEfficiency
Make LIFEfficiency the mainstream medium for location-based task management; get a large customer base.
