Inspiration: I always get frustrated finding ideal study spots in my college library
What it does: Shows availability of spots in real time for customers. For staff, you can tap a button(chair or table) and it changes to either red or green depending on whether the spot is busy or available. Staff can also drag and drop and customize layout easily.
How we built it: We built it in SpriteKit and UiKit using Swift in Xcode
Challenges we ran into: Everything from understanding swift concepts to making a final MVP was a huge challenge for me as I had no computer science background. Implementing UiKit and SpriteKit together was also challenging.
Moreover, I started off by hard coding 37 buttons in UiKit. However, during the third week I wanted to make the layout more dynamic and so I switched to SpriteKit and implemented it.
