RoxorRescue for Disaster Search & Rescue

Graduating from the Mobile Web Specialist nanodegree program gave me the confidence to enter my first hackathon. The IBM Call for Code hackathon started at least two months before I heard about it so I’m only going to get a few evenings and weekend chunks of time in the now two weeks before the deadline but … I’m loving the project I’m working on.

Idea #1 would have required months of research and whatnot but it’s possible I could finish this (to some extent) in time to submit it.

RoxorRescue is an offline-first progressive web app using PouchDB and CouchDB. Submissions have to use IBM Cloud tools so I’ll be using Cloudant (for the CouchDB bit) among other products.

Here’s a concept for the GUI I made in Photoshop along with the current state of affairs.

It’s meant to be used on a mobile device and when I tested it there I was elated that the photo bit finally worked but …

… a couple things stuck out … not the least of which was the inaccessible “Take Photo” button.

Post-hackathon, I’ll be welcoming any and all contributors during Hacktoberfest and beyond.
