WrkBook started as a learning project. Three months ago I wanted to learn IOS development and since my dad had a hard time finding a job I wanted to create an app that will help him find a job related to construction. The only way to find a job in construction is through connections and coming to a country knowing no one is extremely difficult, especially when it comes to finding a job.
What it does
This app connects contractors to construction workers(painters, electricians, designers... you name it)
How I built it
I used Swift and firebase to build this app
Challenges I ran into
Being new to programming and having no one is challenging. I discovered stack overflow and a community of programmer called freecodecamp. Both resources helped me through this journey.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Although the app is not complete. I'm proud of the work I've accomplished so far. Coming to this country a few years ago not knowing anything about computers truly amazes me and its something I'm proud of.
What I learned
I learned the basics of programming and I discovered my love for programming.
What's next for wrkBook
I'm proud to say that this Idea won The Zahn startup competition in my school. This summer I'm working with 3 other friends and we will be building the backend using nodeJs. I want to keep learning from this project and someday help millions of people like my father (regardless of where they come from) find jobs that they love.
