Inspiration

Seeing students on facebook having a hard time trying to learn a new skill but could not find a perfect community or partner, or cannot afford a professional couch, we decide to make this video-based platform to benefit everyone in ucsd.

What it does

V-find is a video based skill-exchange platform. People coming here could upload videos of how they expertise in some fields. These amazing videos would attract other people who wanna learn those skills. If you happen to have the skill and the other is looking for - Bingo! You guys are matched! You can now start learning from your schoolmates!

How we built it

1 day crash crash course of javascript, react.js and flask

1 night of git conflicts

1 morning of questioning life and gcp

Challenges we ran into

We are beginners for web page design, and we have no idea how the javascript works, thus we spent a bunch of time learning the language. And the backend is even much harder than frontend.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud that we have accomplished most of the project even if we are beginners. Most of us have zero experience about front-end or back-end.

What we learned

  • Agile development
  • Front-end development
  • Back-end development
  • Python Flask Framework
  • React.js Framework
  • git workflow
  • teamwork

What's next for vfind

We wanna make this website a more complete and smart place to better help people. We will try to develop more detailed features, like pairing percentage, auto-recommendation for users, and etc.

Add more features and make the website fully operational
