  • Developed a system that farmers used to manage their activities like stock record keeping, sales, supplies, and field status monitoring. This helped them reduce manual work in their daily activities.
  • The system was also used by cooperative societies to provide services like payments and communication updates with the help of Twilio SMS API.
  • The main web application was built using HTML, CSS, Javascript, and D3 Js. This resulted in a dynamic application that could be used while offline and work perfectly in areas with poor internet.
  • On the back-end we used Python/Django to mainly set up a Restful API. We used both Mysql and Postgresql databases but the latter was preferred because it works best with GIS data.
  • Lastly, we used Git for version control and continuous integration.
