Marketplace for urban quests
2GIS Urban hackathon project
Django RESTful API
Angular + Bootstrap
GitHub, Jira, Travis CI, Slack
This project has been produced on the «Urban hackathon»
2GIS for two days.
Unfortunately, we didn't win anything, but it gave us an idea to begin a real project, connected with city quests.
It could be like a marketplace for city quests, where everyone can invent and publish quest (and earn money). Users would have a great opportunity to better know the city where they are.
What we've done
- Web application for both desktop and mobile devices with minimum functionality
- We used geolocation check and 2GIS map API
- User was able to try our test quest
- Python Django REST API, parts of which were working in our product
- Bought and confugured web-domain and SSL certificate (for security + for using geolocation API in browsers)
On August 1 we launched the service with Android application and web interface for users.
The launch was accompanied by posts in social networks.
It was with old version of design: logo and colours; and just one quest, which was available for free.
Android application was published in Google Play Store
Users, who subscribed on launch notification on landing page, received customized emails.
After launch we realised, that we don't have such users acquisition, as we wanted.
To resolve this problem we started to prepare new release with some error fixes.
We reinvented our logo and colour guidelines.
And also we made new quest.
In October we presented new design:
- New logo
- New colours
- New layout for website
CEO agreed with the Czechs about cooperation: localisation and launch of Quest-City for Czech Republic and Slovakia.
