Overview of My Submission

We created Wash_Out because we know firsthand how overwhelming life can get. Between classes, deadlines, and trying to have a social life, laundry often ends up at the bottom of the to-do list. We wanted to change that.

Our team has been there, feeling the stress of not having enough hours in the day to get everything done. That's why we came up with Wash_Out – a solution to help students and busy professionals reclaim their time and energy.

The idea sparked from our own struggles with balancing school, work, and personal life. We realized that spending hours on laundry was taking away precious moments that could be spent doing things we actually enjoy.

Tech Stack

  • Flutter: Think of Flutter as the toolbox we used to build the Wash_Out app. It's like having a set of tools that makes building apps for both Android and iOS easier. With Flutter, we could create the different parts of the Wash_Out app, like buttons, screens, and how things look, without having to write separate code for each type of phone.

  • Firebase: Firebase is like the engine behind the Wash_Out app. It's what makes everything work smoothly behind the scenes. For example, Firebase helped us make sure that when you sign in to the app, it's safe and secure. It also helps us keep track of your laundry orders and payments. Plus, Firebase lets us send you notifications when your laundry is ready, so you never miss a beat.

Challenges We Faced

  1. Participating in our first hackathon was an overwhelming experience for us. Despite it being a month-long event, we had never written a single line of code in Flutter before. Overcoming this lack of experience was one of the most challenging aspects for us.

  2. Creating a shopping cart system and saving items in the cart, then generating a receipt for the user upon payment, proved to be one of the most difficult tasks we encountered. It required careful planning and execution to ensure a smooth and reliable user experience.

  3. Designing the UI/UX was also a significant challenge for us. Deciding on the colors, button styles, and overall layout was confusing at times. We had to brainstorm and iterate multiple times to achieve a design that both looked appealing and was user-friendly.
