Our inspiration for this project was to create a space for people to realtime show their skills and what they can offer to the world, while still maintaining credibility. We wanted a platform that both employers and employees can likewise trust for determining an individuals skills.
What it does
You compete in projects to increase your skill points that you compete under to build up your skills
How I built it
We built it using Sketch to prototype, and we also worked with MongoDB and Node.js for the server side. Elo algorithms and data structures are used to determine how much an individuals skill should increase.
Challenges I ran into
Planning and organizing the app to timely deploy. Shifting the services my app offers based on the real market.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Establishing an infrastructure that promotes credibility and trust for employers and employees alike.
What I learned
Learned how to use sketch. Design process. On time isn't as important as it being done right. Learned how to make decisions on the spot and scrap previous plans that will not lend any outcome.
What's next for Sprout
Build infrastructure and partner with skill certifiers to legitimize our challenge creators and Sprout as a whole
