We wanted to build knowledge and experience on working in a team to solve a real world problem. Also because of free swag and the chance to network.

What it does

It allows users to be the reporters! First, a person signs up and enters their information. Then they can submit reports, which includes title, summary of information, media, and specific organization. If an organization accepts a report through their portal, then the reporter gets a set number of CRED points, which reflect the credibility of the reporter. The amount of CRED points rewarded grows exponentially lower. In the future, we would like to have higher CRED users to be paid for their reports.

How I built it

We went through an aggressive veting process of ideas. We were introduced to android studio and java, and we took it upon us to learn all the associated technology, like Microsoft graph api and Firebase.

Challenges I ran into

Java's object oriented allow for structure design. Unfriendly error messages in Java. Sleep deprivation. NO WATER!!!!

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

My Octopigcat drawing. Learning Microsoft graph api and creating operational android applications.

What I learned

Java, Android Studio, becoming more open to speak out your idea. Pre planning for that hackathon.

What's next for Scoops

Seed-fundings. Full integration of the application. Being able to create partnership with news organization.
