Who: Help Me With It
When: Summer 2015
The mission of Help Me With It is to connect individuals who need help to do one-off tasks with individuals who can volunteer their time to fix, clean, care, shop, transport, garden, sort, teach and more. There is no service like this in the not-for-profit sector. This is a digital disrupter in the social service and volunteering sectors.
During RHOK, the Help Me With It team started to build a minimum viable product in Ruby on Rails. They used a Postgres back-end and ran it on Heroku. It was a good experience to help revise the functional and non-functional specifications for the platform and a great start to the build.
