There are many students on campus who have parking spots but no cars, and many people who have cars but no (good) parking spots. Frequently, people post on Facebook, but this is a more concise, efficient way to make the market.
What it does
Plots available parking spots up for rent by local residents onto a convenient map, which can then be easily browsed by drivers.
How I built it
Webstorm Web Development IDE, Parse data management/backend, Google Maps API for plotting parking spots
Challenges I ran into
Difficulty integrating various APIs, and learning to web develop on the fly
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
User interface, "full stack" development experience gained
What I learned
jQuery, how to use Parse/manage data, HTML, CSS, APIs
What's next for MPark
Login/user accounts, functionality for users to add parking spots. gauge interest, mobile development?
