We wanted to make something that would be useful to the people of the WPI community
What it does
It allows the user to record and view when buildings at WPI are open or closed
How we built it
This was build as an android studio app using java.
Challenges we ran into
We initially tried to store data for the different locations in a room database. Neither of us had ever worked with databases so we ended up just passing the data between the different activities through intents.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This is our first hackathon and we are proud that we completed something that is worthy of submitting!
What we learned
Neither of us have worked extensively with android studio. This project allowed us to really understand some of the fundamental things used in making android apps, like Activities, Intents, and designing XML layouts
What's next for WPI Availability App
We hope to continue working on it until it can actually fulfil our goal of being useful to people at WPI.
