The hackathon was held online for well-known reasons, but this did not stop our participants. On the last day of registration, as a result of a brainstorming session, 2 ideas were selected and 2 teams were assembled for their implementation. We would like to share their cases and insights of the participants.
Case 1: Social network for residents of the house
Fincase Unicorn Team chose the track "Urban Environment". The team included: project manager, front - end and three back - end developers. The idea was to create a social network for the residents of the house for the interaction I between them , as well as simplifying the interaction with various external services.
o A general bulletin board divided into topics with the ability to leave comments. So you can organize a joint game of volleyball or quickly contact the one who blocked his the passage by a car in the yard.
o Notifications. This is a method of reporting various important events. For example, a house-to-house vote , meter check notification, and various private events. For example, if a neighbor started a noisy repair or decided to drill, he tells what he will do and at what time.
o Mutual assistance. Various requests for help - buying products for the elderly, renting tools, etc. By clicking the "Help" button, you can declare your initiative to contact a person.
o Custom setting of houses for any types of layouts.
o Emergency help. In the event of an emergency, the person presses the button and all people from the house receive an alert with the sound that emergency assistance is required with the apartment number.
o Integration with services. For example, housing and communal services, taxi call, ambulance, appointment for a haircut, delivery / courier, cleaning company, dry cleaning. Monetization consists in adding paid services mixed with necessary ones.
