Inspiration ## What it does Sisters of the Road
Word of Mouth(WoM): the application is designed to be based on user input. In the past one hundred years it was common for migratory people to communicate with each other using various symbols painted to give warnings and aid to one another. This is the basis for the design elements of our app.
•The o in the center of Word of Mouth is the symbol for “this way”, and our app aims to work as a community contributed guide.
How we built it
angular.js, html, bootstrap, twistedklein, python
Challenges we ran into
Angular is a jerk, our skill sets didn't have much overlap so it was hard to figure out the stack,
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Deploying to heroku, angular getting up and running, front and back connecting, using angular google maps api successfully, using bootstrap and angular for the first time(for some of us).
What we learned
A little bit about angular, a little about bootstrap, a lot about team work.
What's next for Word of Mouth
We hope that we plant the seed for a truly versatile and helpful app, empathizing community driven resources.
