Sometimes there will be impromptu / emergency events that people may not be aware of immediately. We want to create something that will keep people up to date while socializing at the same time.
What it does
Notifying people on impromptu events and changes instantly based on the interest groups the users joined.
How we built it
We split into the front-end and back-end team, each consisting of two people.
We utilized react native framework to build an integrated front-end, and also made use of react-native-paper to improve UI system. Using python and djando framework, we created the back-end of our software as a web server that handles HTTP API requests.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We really like the idea of POP!, and we are pretty satisfied with the product that came out after a day of effort. We learned and accomplished more than we thought we would in 20 hours and we are proud of it, especially that we made something that we ourselves will feel comfortable using in daily life.
What we learned
What's next for POP!
Fix potential bugs and add more features! New features may include: (1) Allow muting groups by duration (2) Allow creating events with photos and/or videos (3) More robust authentication system for bot-protection and anti-hacking protection.
We hope to see a release of the app in the future!
