On social networks, people invited eldery or frail people to hang red clothes on their window to show they need help. The app is allowing people who need help to "wave a red flag" and get help.
What it does
It connects people who need help with neighbors ready to help. Sick people with COVID-19 or any other disease, or elderly people, can request help for food or other essentials delivery. Healthier and younger volunteers can provide this help.
How I built it
It is based on firebase and Angular 9.
Challenges I ran into
- FInding free services for geocoding and maps
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Doing it all by myself, in just 3 weeks, on technologies I didn't really know.
What I learned
Angular (ok, I had some basics), Firebase
