Shopping With Friends
Coordinating groceries and trips to the store are the last things on the mind of the busy Dartmouth student. At the same time, we care about our community and the environment and seek to strengthen communal bonds while cutting down carbon emissions.
That said, we present Shopping with Friends, an app which takes the commute out of community.
- Integration with SMS (via Twilio), allows you to text your friends and aggregate their shopping needs with zero communication overhead.
- Online transaction processing (via Venmo). Avoid the awkwardness of collecting money directly from your friends.
- Ultra-high scalability and ultra-low latency thanks to NoSQL datastores (MongoDB), asynchronous event-loop frameworks (Node.js), and dynamic load balancing/scaling (Windows Azure).
