Challenges I ran into

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We're excited to have a working demo. Our app takes photos and stores them to a database, along with grabbing geolocation data and any net details.

What I learned

We learned a little about working together and staggering our sleep schedules! We used some new prototyping tools for this project which were fun to work with and learn on a live project.

What's next for Turtle Hero

Next steps we'd love to see Turtle Hero have some minor polishing.
