Inspiration

We saw having to check the weather for events that you've scheduled as tedious and inconvenient. An app that checks the weather for you for those scheduled events seemed like it could most definitely be a useful tool.

What it does

Our app, which works on both android and iOS, checks your google calendar for events you've set to occur within the next 15 days. It lists those events for you and displays expected weather data for the location and date of the event.

How we built it

Primarily used react-native and javascript, implementing Accuweather's 15 day forcecasts and postal code api's, google calendar api's, and google maps api's.

Challenges we ran into

The biggest challenge we ran into was actually learning react. None of has have ever touched the language and have very little experience with javascript at that. We also used a month's worth of api keys on accident near the very end of our project due to an infinite loop that led to a stressed filled panic as we scrambled to find another key and resolve the issue.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We created a fully functioning app that works on android and iOS that does almost exactly what we set out to do.

What we learned

We are all much more familiar with react and capable of using that knowledge in the future.

What's next for spot

If we had more time we would have added a feature allowing you to see what the weather conditions would be on your way to your destination.
