Automated External Defibrillator Project

This Jacques de Champlain Foundation mobile project was developed using PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I started the project by building the administrative web application and allowing it to enter automated external defibrillators (AEDs) into the system. After that, I built mobile apps for users to learn about AEDs.
