Kyle originally had the idea, mostly because he was not doing so well in classes and wanted to apply his computer science skills to solve the problem.
What it does
Tempo is a scheduling app that uses two methods: 1) Requiring sub-tasks to every task to encourage the user to attempt the task in smaller steps 2) Showing how stressful a day will be as you plan it by accumulating chili points based on the user-provided difficulty of every task.
How we built it
We used ruby in order to create an API to interact with our database, and used swift and java to build our application.
Challenges we ran into
There was some trouble when we made the API, and it took some time to set up before we could start on the applications. We also had some trouble establishing a connection with our database when we were using java.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are very proud of the effort we exerted into making this schedule application, and having a finished product is overall very fulfilling. We also became better friends along this long, sleep-deprived journey as well.
What we learned
We learned a bit about https connections within java, and how to use a table view within swift.
What's next for Tempo
We plan on making the interface more sleek and professional, add an options menu, and patch any minor bugs we may have missed.
