For some first generation college students, they do not have access to people who can serve as mentors to them, or give them professional advice. In addition to this problem, most mentor-mentee relationships are a huge commitment and can be time-consuming for both the mentors and mentees. our college careers and beyond
In an attempt to solve this problem, we created an app that allows people to find mentors or professionals who can give them advice without the time commitment. We refer to this app as "Minder, Tinder for Mentors."
How we built it
The app was built for iOS, with swift for the front-end and ruby on rails for the back-end.
Challenges we ran into
Due to the complexity of the features we hoped to include in the app, our main challenge was time. The time we had was not enough to fully develop all the features we hoped for.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We managed to build the main functionality of the app, including the main features. We also included beautiful icons and developed a very solid UI.
What's next for Minder Mobile Application
In the future, we hope to implement the features we were unable to implement during this time, and push the app to the iOS store to the public.
