Inspiration

With the holiday season right around the corner, we saw an increased need for printed holiday photos. However, going to a local store and waiting for the photos to print is often inconvenient. We streamlined the process of printing your holiday photos!

What it does

Using the Walgreens API, you can upload photos and send them to a local Walgreens. Then a PostMates courier will pick up your photos and deliver them right to your door! There's no longer a need to leave the comfort of your home to print your precious holiday photos to send to your loved ones!

How I built it

We built this web app using Javascript, HTML, CSS and the Walgreens and Postmates API.

Challenges I ran into

Proficient knowledge in the field of web development. Difficulties with implementing the API's. Getting addicted to the Tanvas Kinetic Sand.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Developing a web app that can be used in the near future. Making everyone's lives easier during the hectic holiday season.

What I learned

Learning how to better use Node.js and JavaScript.

What's next for PhotoMates

Including a payment system that allows the consumer to pay for the total in one platform. Tracking the PostMates courier to ensure you are available when they deliver. Linking this application with the Walgreens mobile app so consumers can request photos to be delivered via the existing app.
