We decided to select this project because we felt it fit the theme of HackBI VI, which is worldwide. In addition, several of the team members play Wordle, so we figured that a world airport edition of Wordle would be a great idea to pursue for this hackathon.
What it does
This program is effectively Wordle but with our own spin on it. In the JTextFields, you will enter the 3-letter airport code that you want to guess. You have five guesses to get the correct airport code. After every airport code is submitted, you will be told how many letters you have correct and incorrect. On the right side of the JFrame we placed a help box, with all of the Airport codes used. The airport code for you to guess is randomly selected by the computer.
How we built it
We coded this project in Java. We used graphics, file reading,
Challenges we ran into
We had problems with inheritance and organizing methods and classes.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were proud that we were able to work as a team and get something submitted. No matter what the result is, our teamwork is what we are most proud of. In addition, we are also proud of our programming skills that we have enhanced on during this hackathon.
What we learned
We learned more about jPanel, GitHub, and putting file reading and graphics together.
What's next for Airportle
We could turn Airportle into a website if we choose to develop it further, with more airport option, enhanced UI, and other ways to give hints.
