When adding new friends, it's a pain to type their names and contact info, and then searching them on each social media to add them as friends. What if this process can be simplified?
What it does
Qontact is a virtual contact card that enables a user to add a person’s contact information and social media all at once. Qontact runs on a mobile-friendly dynamic website that generates a QR code that contain an individual’s contact information/social media.
How I built it
Front-End: Riya. Back-End: Ami Zou & Steven Chan. Design: Riya. Product Management: Gillian Pantaleon.
Challenges I ran into
- Set up Postgres and Apache; for some reason, localhost and some ports were not running
- Attempted to use Flask for postgresql & python connection but failed
- Switched back to PHP but had many errors in compiling the file
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
