At queuebuddy we aim to help aleviate pressure on business on conforming Covid-19 quarantine standarts by providing an easy to use solution to have customers join the line and for the owner to delegate someone to manage that line completely virutal, by way of Web application and SMS messaging Our application consits of a backend REST api and WebSocket api hosted on AWS using Elastic Beanstalk to manage load balancing and factors such as HTTPS and DNS. On the front end we have created a website in Wix that where business owners can manage aspects of their store, such as store hours and who gets to manage the line. For the future we hope to integrate work done in this capstone class into our production environment, as we only have them in our development environmennt thus far. Further from this we hope to add a feature that will allow store owners to setup appointments, to accomdate businesses such as hair dressers and Doctors Offices
At first we had the idea of Simpl4x, which was meant to be a way for normal people to get investing in the foreign exchange market and that also would have deployed a machine learning AI to predict what the market would be like in the future by parsing current world events. We got decenetly far, however due to inconfidence in the future of the project because of factors such as Covid-19 we dropped that idea shortly after the first capstone course ended. In the spring one of the team members sisters had the idea of a virutal line system, after some changing around with the idea and platform, this later became QueueBuddy. which transformed into a business around June with Nathan Lapp, Miguel Ramos Gonzales and Miguel's two sisters becoming founders of this company. Near the end of the summer we had an alpha going, this is pretty much the state of the release, except with more polish. The reason it took so long to release was factors such as funding, busy school/work load and developing the new features for the capstone, which will not see release until later.
