Forth Place Overall
For the Halloween-Themed KentHackEnough2018, the goal of the project was to make something that made Trick-or-Treating easier for kids and parents. Three biggest issues that were determined was finding out if a house still had treats (is something like a bowl was left out), determining what treats each house had so kids could maximize their time getting treats they wanted (king sized) without getting treats they didn't, and determining if the treats the house had were allergy friendly for the parents.
What it does
Treats Without Tricks is based on the concept of crowd sourcing map data (similar to Waze). However, instead of getting traffic related data, trick-or-treaters, parent, and the houses offering their candy can add an entry to the map. From there, the map is filterable by which types of treats the house offers, so people can easily get just the information they are looking for. In addition, all entries are searchable, so users can search for addresses in addition to map points.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The main thing that we were proud of was we got all of the features we planned on implementing working by the time of the demo. This was most of the team's second or third hackathon, and so it was a big accomplishment for all of us that we could demo all of the components that we had planned.
What we learned
What's next for Treats without Tricks
Unlike most hackathon projects where the next step is to finish adding the planned features, the next part of Treats Without Tricks is likely user testing and based on that making improvements and new features as suggested from those using the software.
