Inspiration

Our Walmart is a non-profit organization that works towards ensuring every worker at the retail giant, regardless of his or her title, age, race, or sex, is respected. Our project aims to empower the employees by educating them of their rights, and bringing them together through peer-to-peer support and communication.

What it does

Location based app with integrated forum and chat. Plus, a library of information for employees to easily look up and reference.

How I built it

Built on Xcode with swift, some objective-c libraries, and multiple frameworks.

Challenges I ran into

Xcode issues with missing frameworks, Auto layout, Syncing github projects.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Our chat is fully functional and has notifications

What I learned

Chat integration and geo-location

What's next for OUR Walmart Connect

Implementing more features we planned but didn't have time to include. Such as a meme-generator, a fun feature, so people will be more engaged and excited to use the app. And also data visualizations of the work hours and wages, with a calculator and comparison to national averages. This would help employees see how much they are overworked or underpaid, and at the same time crowdsource data for the organization.
