Our team spent ten weeks developing an iPhone app, called Bilancio, that helps teach and practice budgeting skills for the Ready for Life program, which prepares students with cognitive, social or learning disabilities for a life of independence. Focusing on usability, we strove to make a simple, intuitive app, tailored to the needs of teachers and students at Ready for Life. The development process included learning Apple's programming language, Swift, and using industry standard version control, communication and project management tools. By the end of the summer, we had created a unique product that would benefit the lives of its users.
