Meteor was chosen as the tech stack, allowing for easy handling of Front End, Back End, and DevOps. Google Maps was used to display a map with the location of posts.


  • Chango was launched in under three months from branding to final deployment.
  • The development of Chango allowed me to learn about devops, databases, and other backend technology.
  • Chango also served as a white-label product for similar projects using social media and geolocation capabilities, as the creator developed LaPazQuerida's site as a white-label product.
  • This initial version of Chango allowed for testing with real users, helping to better understand their motivations and increasing civic engagement.
