Hello, I am Muskan, 2nd year UG student from Shri Mata Vaishno Devi University. My teammate, Amulya and I are really interested in contributing to this project. I have some experience in making websites using technologies like HTML, CSS, JS etc. and on the other hand my teammate is well versed with android application development(kotlin). We are currently learning other skills required for this project. It would be an amazing idea about taking regular breaks and get refreshed to work efficiently.

We would love to contribute to this project , Looking forward to your apt response.

Hi Jan! My teammate Sabine and I would love to work on this project :) We love the idea of creating an app that reminds people to take a step back and relax.

Sabine and I have just gone through an intensive web-dev bootcamp in the last 6 months, and code in Node.js, JS, HTML, CSS, express, React, Redux, RESTful APIs, MongoDB and PostgreSQL. Sabine also has a background in digital design, and I have a background in analytics and marketing. We have 3 wonderful coaches joining our team, both full-stack and front-end, and we're really excited to work with them. We're all based in Amsterdam.

We'd love to get in touch and discuss your project further if you're up for it!
