What it does
It's a website built for the community to share their fears and insecurities anonymously. Here users can even support and suggest ways to overcome a particular fear/insecurity for the fellow users. Once a user overcomes a fear, they can even post a picture sharing how they did it. It also has an interactive puzzle game based on sharks
How we built it
We have used React JS and Cassandra DB to build it out.
Challenges we ran into
Using Cassandra DB was in itself a challenge since it's a combination of Relational and Non-Relational Database. With the front-end, building an interactive layout along with animations was a nice challenge.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud to have taken our project close to where we had initially taken it to be.
What we learned
We learned using Cassandra as a means of a back-end and creating a layout that is up to date with the current social media standards.
What's next for The Phobia
We are thinking of implementing a one-to-one chat feature where a user could talk with an experienced counselor in times of need.
