After an entire night of coding and product development, the teams are almost on their way to go with the products. However the last hurdle reamins- Day 2.
Afer 24 hours of hacking, now we have completed the basic task that we set to complete. Overnight we successfully received sms from user / MW, retrive the tags in sms, process it accordingly. We are able to store both question and answer in our Database. We were also successful in sending sms to MW with related tag and send the respective answer to the questioner. Lots of work has been done overnight on programming and database management. Now we are trying to make web based application to monitor the MW, status of question and answers, register MW etc.
Mobile survery now started its 2nd day of development. Now it will be ready to be in the market and all will know about it in few hours.
Back to work after a long tired night.....2 hours power nap was too good enough for all of us.work is alot and heart is beatting really fast..hoping for a great day today.....
The hackathon is already halfway through, teams are showing signs of breaking through with a solution. One question still lingers though...are we winning?
10 teams, 10 ideas, 2 days, 3 winners...watch it all unfold live on our ustream channel at http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/25425949
Wow, time is flying here at mLab Southern Africa as participants got cracking on their ideas after this morning's session. m2work is not an easy concept to translate at first and some of our teams have gone through multiple iterations of their ideas to really find the m2work value and making it possible for many more people to contribute and earn money from doing micro work.
Sodh-Khoj (सोध खोज) project is simple, started with a simple concept in sense that everybody has expertise in someting field and anyone might need that expertise to solve some problem or just need some information in that field.So, one asking the question pays and the one answering gets paid. This is done through sms which is avaliable even in the cheapest mobile phone and does not depend on any mobile OS/platform.
Great Day, Our teams have been trying to finalize their ideas. It's A long day. They have been coding for hours.
We wish Happy coding to All Groups ;)
