Created during Cal Hacks 3.0. I worked on this project with a number of talented friends (Shreya Sahoo, Thu Nguyen, Bansi Parekh, and Alyssa Huang).
The last few years of American history have been filled with increasing political and social unrest. Especially with the turbulent aftermath of the 2016 election, we were reminded of the importance of staying safe while voicing our opinions. While demonstrations seem to be inextricably entwined with Berkeley culture, the wide range of experiences we hear about from peers is at times disconcerting. Through creating a communication platform geared specifically towards keeping protestors informed, we hope to give students a more immersive yet safe experience when letting their voices be heard.
For most of our team, this project represented the accomplishment of our first hackathon and iOS app. In a mere 36 hours, we were able to immerse ourselves in the basics of iOS app creation and teach ourselves Swift and Sketch.
I personally worked on the front end and mockups for our project. This was my first time using Sketch, an app used for front end integration and visualization (in combination with Photoshop).
