📖 What did I learn?

I took up this project to practice MVVM architecture, while doing so, I also learnt about Firebase Cloud Messaging. Since I wanted to integrate Maps in the app, I read about Google Maps but it required adding a payment method to access API, then I researched about the alternatives, and found out MapBox is the way to go. By the time I finished this project, I had a clear idea about MVVM architecture and got to know that I need to learn more topics like Pagination, Caching, etc.
