Inspiration

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.
