Final submission post: Engelsystem

This summer has been really amazing, I learnt a lot and worked crazy hours it has been a crazy yet amazing ride. I am not going to stop working on open source projects and posting the blog post.

In this post, I would like to summarize all the work that I did during this summer. Working with FOSSASIA was an amazing experience for me. I got to learn a lot during this summer. Thanks to such amazing mentors.

My project Engelsystem is an online tool for helper and shift planning on major events. It lets the user organize their helper in teams, they share in layers or let them decide when and where they want to help themselves.
