- PLAN QUICKLY
This was the 2nd VIA codeathon we (Team Pixel) participated in. My partner and I knew we had to work quickly and prioritizing our time was going to critical to our success.
- CODE. CODE. CODE.
After planning, we split the tasks and began working as quickly as possible.
There are two rounds of judging in the VIA codeathon. The first round is in your category. You do not know if you have made it into the finals until they call your group! It is very stressful, but also exciting! We were extremely focused heading into the judging.
After a super intense weekend with little sleep, we were so excited to have placed first in our category! While, we could not complete an entire UI for this project, we were proud of the enhancements that were completed. Not only did we complete the quick trips required functionality, we added a chose your own adventure for the VIVA preset bus routes, which are stops at local landmarks! We utilized a Python backend and React frontend, integrating both the Yelp and Google API.
