Inspiration

Saving One Life manually collected information on prospective adopters. This vetting process was tedious as the assistant director would personally find profile information from social media, apartment complexes, and driving records.

What it does

The application consists of a back end that generates a compatibility score based on application answers; flags questionable social media posts; and organizes information in MongoDB. The front end imports and exports csv files; allows administration and normal user access to specific data; login and registration; and applicant lists.

How we built it

The front end was built with Python, Flask, HTML, Bootstrap, and JavaScript/JQuery in the Visual Studios IDE. The back end was built with Python, Flask, and MongoDB. Various Python libraries were utilized in the project.

Challenges we ran into

Developing machine learning algorithm and creating parameters without real datasets from the nonprofit.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Created a foundation for machine learning in a nonprofit context through the development of an easy-use database, algorithm framework, and password secured user interface.

What we learned

Learned MongoDB, the python flask framework, and python Twitter API. Furthered knowledge in docker for security and deployment. Created the foundation for a full stack website that automates the Saving One Life application processes.

What's next for Adoption Candidate Tracker

Receive previous application forms from Saving One Life to fully train scoring algorithm. Integrate solution with Saving One Life’s software. Implement JWT controls and site settings.

Built With

Python, Docker, MongoDB, Bootstrap, JQuery
