We wanted to build something from the beginning of the school year to try and bring people together who are suffering from depression or anxiety. We finally got together at this hackathon to try and build what we wanted to from the start.
What it does
The prototype itself doesn't do much because we were struggling to import an SDK that supports video chat. It just registers and logs in a user through firebase.
How we built it
It was built in swift while also using many different cocoa pods.
Challenges we ran into
We couldn't implement our video chat for users to interact with each other because the twilio sdk was not working for two people. The video chat would only work for one person and that was really it.
What we learned
We learned how to interact with the twilio sdk and get a user logged into a private room.
What's next for retreat
We're going to try and build on top of it again soon.
