There’s an instagram page, NEUGigs, that is run by a student who simply screenshots Instagram DMs and posts them. We wanted to streamline this process and create a community.
What it does
It is a webpage that allows for students to buy/sell/trade products and services.
How I built it
Many hours of coding away, googling, and help from all the mentors
Challenges I ran into
We had a lot of difficulty with storing user data throughout the site. We were able to do initial authentication but could not store their information to use elsewhere.
We are also only able to run locally at the moment.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
As first time hackathon goers, I think we’re all proud of just getting an idea and trying to execute it to the best of our abilities.
What I learned
I learned that planning ahead and researching what you plan on doing is important to realize what is within scope.
What's next for ListNEU
We will probably try and learn how to properly do all the things we couldn’t accomplish and execute them, so we can learn all that we can
