As students, each of us has struggled with making and finding groups to study with. Studr is our attempt to make the process easy and fun.
What it does
Studr is an app that a makes it easy to find and join study groups in your area, or around your university. It also makes it easy to create your own groups and invite your friends.
How we built it
We used swift to design a iOS application for front end, and Parse to design the backend. We also used come cocoa-pod frameworks.
Challenges we ran into
Parse was a challenge to both learn and implement. This was our greatest struggle. We also had more than a few close calls with merge conflicts and Github.
Accomplishments that we are proud of
Learning and implementing a functional Parse database and user authentication; our first step into the realm of back end development.
What we learned
We learned how to program using the swift programing language and Parse as well as distributed revision control and source code management using Github. We also learned how to adopt many other third party frameworks into our projects.
What's next for Studr
Studr is a large progect, and we plan on continuing working on it in the future. We plan on implementing QR code mechanics, a completely functional social system, and Google map support. We also intend on using the Uber api to give users the ability to find quick and reliable transportation.
