The main inspiration for the project was the current weather conditions we faced here in Texas recently.

What it does

The app works by entering a name of a city you wish to get weather details on and the app returns that information

How we built it

The app was built using java swing and the openweather api.

Challenges we ran into

The main challenge I faced was being new to api calling and also this being my first hackathon event.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The main accomplishment that I am proud of from this event is stepping into a completely unknown arena without a team and still being sticking through the event.

What we learned

One great thing I learned and now understand is how to parse and utilize api calls and also knowing how a hackathon works for the next time I do one.

What's next for Weather Bug

My goal is to eventually finish the implementation of the application using the flutter framework and adding additional features to the application including other databases with useful information on a area.
