Inspiration

As a team, our inspiration for this project stemmed from our personal experiences with cooking as a new university student. We felt like we were missing out on key aspects of cooking and recipes we may have found delicious, but were too lazy to find.

What it does

Tasteasy is a helpful tool for any young adult that makes finding new recipes and using your current ingredients an easy task. It helps to make the most out of leftovers and reduce food waste while also conveniently storing your favourite recipes for you to access at any time.

How we built it

We used Figma, GitHub, React Native, Java, AWS to build this project.

Challenges we ran into

The challenges we ran into were mostly due to the learning curve of the new languages and learning to integrate already existing work into our project such as existing recipes. We also struggled in the beginning with learning how to work around GitHub.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're proud of the idea and the planning we were able to accomplish as well as the UI design of the app. We're also proud of how much we learned during this time and the work we put into learning it.

What we learned

As a team, we learned the basics of navigating and using GitHub. We also were required to learn React Native (and therefore React), how to integrate and make use of APIs, as well as new Java libraries. Also, we learned about AWS and how to use it.

What's next for Tasteasy

On the roadmap for Tasteasy, we have the addition of user profiles, a greater variety of recipes and filters to search for recipes, more customization for users and user preferences, as well as the addition of a more social aspect where you can connect and view the favourite recipes of your friends.
