How We Did It.

24 Hours of Code Hackathon Freats
It began at a Hackathon. Freats was created to solve a problem proposed during the annual 2018 Code | 24 Hackathon sponsored by Blackstone Launchpad at Montana State University
 — Within 24 hours, we had developed a working prototype of the application
After being awarded the “Health & Human Development” Award, we pursued further development of the app and competed in the 2018 John Ruffatto Business Competition.

— We had garnered even more attention and now had funding to complete development

It was now time to design & develop

 We outlined different design elements and iterations we wanted to achieve on a white board

Over the course of a couple years, we have gone through many different design iterations as we became more skilled in design and development

— As the lead front-end developer and co-founder, it was my duty to create an interface that suited the needs of multiple end-users and provided a great user experience overall
Our application has gone through many different design iterations in order to find the one that best fits our users’ needs
