This project was inspired from our desire to make a more organized way to create and host volunteer events for the betterment of society.
What it does
Our application allows users to register a account from which they can view events made by other users or create their own for others to join. In these events, other people will be able to see the event details directing them to the location of the event if they so choose to participate.
How we built it
Our application was created with Vue.js for the frontend and Firebase for the database. Firebase was much quicker to create and saved us a great deal of time. Vue.js was used because one of our group members was proficient in it.
Challenges we ran into
We had one extra member on our team, who left unexpectedly which ruined our pacing (The person was going to make a backend). We had to improvise, and decided on Firebase for it's simplicity and how quick it is to implement. In addition, one of us did not know how some program some things, which further decrease the amount of time we had left.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This application was our first project together and we managed to create a fully functional web application which we consider remarkable. We believe this program will truly benefit the world.
What we learned
This project taught us how to plan out our project in the most efficient way possible. In addition, it taught us to improvise in order to overcome any hurdle. We also learned more about the usage of Vue and Firebase. In addition, we were also able to boost our understanding of GitHub.
What's next for Linked Help
We plan to add more features such as a forum where people can create posts there to talk and discuss, and implement a google maps in order to have a more accurate location. We also plan on allowing text to be decorate with bold, underline, italic, etc.
