Everyday thousands of families experience mechanical failure of their well-loved household appliances. Distraught and worried, most cannot afford to purchase new appliances, nor hire a professional that charges hundreds of dollars. Inspired by their struggle, we designed and developed a website that helps people fix the problems themselves by chatting with a live professional. This application, created using MySQL Workbench, JavaScript and Node.js, allows privileged users—in this case, the mechanical professionals—to login and begin work, accessing the database’s contents as necessary. To ensure the success of the site, 10 volunteers beta tested for accuracy, usability, and accessibility.
