We got this idea while looking for places to rent/buy in Boulder. We could not find any reliable reviews of Property Owners in Boulder.
What it does
Allows you to:
- Look up reviews for a landlord
- Rate a landlord
- Provide feedback
- Find landlords
How I built it
We changed tech stacks in the middle twice. We started with a Java backend and React frontend, but got lost in config hell. We switched to a Django backend with Angular frontend. WE used MySQL as a database.
Challenges I ran into
- Configuring Spring
- Configuring AWS
- Getting React to play well with a backend framework
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Getting a demoable prototype in time even after all the config issues. Also, we were able to change stacks pretty comfortably.
What I learned
Pick a simple tech stack. Get an MVP in early. Modify later. Dont waste too much time in configuration.
