Firstly, some family news: my little sister gave birth to Theo today! I've not been told I can go see them yet, but apparently everything happened very quickly. Today is also the birthday of my late Grandfather, so today has been a bit of a roller coaster.

I started working on my Fixathon group project today too.

Group side projects are always quite difficult, I think. There are 4 of us and we all used to work together (3 of us still do). We scheduled an online meetup at noon, but only myself and one other even turned up.

We waited a bit, but started without them anyway. We discovered that Discord screen share can't handle multiple monitors on Linux.

We've decided we're going with a Rails back-end API, so we started there. We're pretty unsure how things are going to be displayed right now, but we know we want a mobile app. We've been looking into barcode APIs, because we want to do a product scanner app. We want to recognise products and categorise them for recycling. 

We have aspirations for this to be an "on the fly" augmented reality app, but realistically, it's looking like we need to take and upload an image.
