cwist is a consumer-oriented start-up company with an early childhood development offering for parents and kids. Their solution focuses on teaching work ethic with a reward and token-based system. cwist provides an interactive library of educational, community service and outdoor challenges for kids, contributed by parents and educators. It is an informal education tool for parents of 5-11-year-old children.

The objective is to allow children to make a ‘wish’ that a parent can use as a reward to complete a ‘cwist’ - a ‘quest with a twist’ that is a set of educational or fun tasks to earn the reward. The user experience of the website, Facebook app, and iOS app that comprise cwist offers a fun and interactive process for parents and kids. Quoin was responsible for system architecture, technology selection, user-experience, implementation, testing, and deployment for this cross-platform project. A significant aspect of the effort was the implementation of the kids’ app for the iPad, which required an iterative development process to achieve an intuitive and easy-to-use interface. The system architecture relied on the Django application framework, PostgreSQL, mongoDB, and other technologies.
