Have you ever walked outside in the morning without an umbrella, just for it to rain in the afternoon? What about dressed in shorts and a t-shirt when a cold front hits? Ever regret not checking that weather app on your phone when you could have actually done something about it? Well no more! Thanks to Weather Imp!
What it does
Weather Imp sends you a text message before you leave on days where the weather is expected to change. You may not want to know that today will be the sixth hot, sunny day in a row, but you'd probably want a warning that a thunderstorm is going to roll in around 2:00PM. That's what we do. Provide you with weather warnings you'd wished you had a few hours before.
How we built it
Google cloud, twilio, python and tears.
Challenges we ran into
Cloud computing is complicated.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
It works, its salable, and it's all built on cloud functions!
What we learned
Cloud computing isn't hard if you know what you're doing.
What's next for WeatherImp
Alpha testing, additional weather conditions, and open beta perhaps?
