Do you know what you’re building on this year’s Porto Summer of Code? If you do, you’re good. If you don’t, maybe get some inspiration from last year’s winners.
Porto Summer of Code 2015 had a number of amazing projects developed by students from all over Portugal. These projects were winners not only because of their usefulness and originality, but also because of their technological prowess. A great marriage of good ideas with new technologies.
Despite the increasingly digital world we live in, we still keep most of our daily life receipts in paper form.
Invoicer is a mobile application to get digital receipts after payment, while also being able to convert the ones previously kept in paper.
Taking advantage of your smartphone’s camera, it makes great of use of optical character recognition technology to solve a relevant problem.
Depending on our location, our behavior and needs might vary. When we are at home, at work, or in the gym, we might need to behave differently and even configure our smartphone accordingly.
ReachN'do is a mobile application that helps you adjust to your location. Making use of your smartphone’s GPS, you can define points of interest and create actions that are automatically triggered once the location changes. Be it a smart notification, or automatically turning off the sound of your device, it helps smoothing your daily life contextual changes.
Shopping for groceries can be a tiresome experience, only to be worsened if an important item is forgotten.
EasyList helps you manage your pantry, easily. It automatically creates shopping lists of the goods you need, using your most frequent products, QR codes, and voice inputs. It also helps you find your usual products at the cheapest prices, by searching the supermarket’s online database.
Inspired? We hope so.
