What inspired us was when Amazon was going to build a new company in longIsland city which is close by our school, Astoria the rent has been increasing so has Corona, gentrification hit us in a personal level. Due to this we are encouraging communities to connect, support and teach each other about gentrification.
What it does
We decided to make an app because it is easier for people to acknowledge what is going on in their community.
How we built it
We first sketched out ideas in which we got from instagram, facebook and twitter. After words we created a working prototype of how the app should function. We didn't get time, but we are planning to use x code a development environment for macOS containing software development tools developed by Apple for developing macOS, iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS.
Challenges we ran into
Some challenges we faced was trying to make our app different than the usual social media and who is our target audience.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of having an idea prototype in which we would love feedback to improve. We are proud to use our time and ideas efficiently and having a plan in what to do next.
What we learned
We learned more about the meaning of gentrification and why it is a big issue that we need to acknowledge.
What's next for Roofs4All
As I said before we are planing to use x code to further develop our app also we are planning to partner up with change.org a petition website.
