Especially in college, stress is a universally (haha get it?) experienced problem, and sometimes you just want to talk about it. We were actually initially inspired by "Tinder" for it's use as a matchmaking application, although we did not exactly take much design influence.
What it does
Our program matches up stressed users with a personal counselor or a professional. The user simply answers a few questions and our program gives them a list of possible helpers to chat with.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into a variety of issues regarding how we managed our back end. However, we found many shorter solutions that ultimately did not affect the user experience.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to create a responsive website that takes user input that generates the appropriate list of outputs. The design is visually appealing and incorporates almost all the necessary components of a real application.
What we learned
We learned the various aspects of website development.
What's next for Uplift
If we were to continue working on uplift in the future, we would work on having an organized messaging system.
