I've been thinking about how delivery services became essential to the survival of local food restaurants, but we still see local businesses shutting down on the news. I'm also an user of this services, and sometimes delivery costs 50% of what my meal cost, so I though that there could be a way to make delivery services more affordable and fair to all parts involved, and my conclusion was that a fair way to reduce it's price is by sharing with a neighbor. Since everybody is at home and trying to save money because of the uncertainty of the future, there could be a tradeoff of time and cost, where people prioritize a lower cost than a higher time of waiting so planning ahead for your meals wouldn't be a so unpleasant.
What it does
I'll tell what it is supposed to do... It allows you to schedule orders and displays it to people near you, near enouh to not increase the delivery price too much and when your neighbors decide to join the order the delivery price decreases. You can also join other's deliveries that you find interesting. I also though that local restaurants are very beloved in their community and they could create a sort of patreon for their loyal costumers in the aplication.
How I built it
I started doing a react native aplication, but couldn't finish
Challenges I ran into
the time was kinda little, I also was very tired at the begginig, it was midnight in here. I wish there was more time to do the submission, I didn't knew I'd have so much to write in here.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Well, I'm proud to endure the entire process, I entered by myself on purpose because I don't feel a little intimidated to do the techinical part when there are people better than me, so I ended up learning a lot, I couldn't finish the way I wanted but, I think it was something to be proud for my level of skill.
What I learned
I learned that joining a group can be more effective even if you want to learn more by doing it all by yourself. That online hackatons are huge pportunity to meet new, incredible, super smart people and I would love to do it again, but next time with a group.
