With the growth of Internet.org around the world, opportunities and possibilities to help people everywhere are increasing. Creating a service directed towards people who have never used anything like it is right at our fingertips. Providing educational content and structure to those who don't have it would be nothing less than incredible.
What it does
How I built it
We used Flask, Rest APIs and SQLAlchamy to build the entire backend, as well as Jinja2 to template the pages of the website with basic HTML and CSS
Challenges I ran into
Using Heroku was a completely new experience. Combining the front-end, back-end and Twilio services became an issue when trying to launch multiple apps on one heroku service.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What I learned
How to split duties, learn new skills quickly, and figure out the necessary features to get an app out there.
What's next for Maarifa
Creating great content, partnering with other companies like Khan Academy, and launching the web app on Internet.org's Free Basics.
