The Microsoft Imagine Cup is being held this Friday at Melbourne University 😊 To celebrate our very own teams that will be competing, we're going to be sharing some brief information on who they are and what they're building 🎉
For our first team, we have David Barrell, Hugo Edwards, Gracie Johnson and Levi Mckenzie with their web application, CommunityAid.
This application aims to improve the safety and wellbeing of those in disaster situations, facilitate community rebuilding, provide information about natural disaster scenarios, and improve targeting of aid and emergency services. It allows users to quickly understand their immediate situation, and respond to events during and after an emergency. This will be made possible through the types of geo-tagged user posts that are supported by CommunityAid.
"Our team believes this application is highly scalable and is ready make a real difference to the lives of those in disasters all around the world."
