Often, we find that we have questions in class which we don't wish to hold up everyone else for. By having a class chatroom, we can ask our peers and teachers questions and get answers as people are available.

What it does

Users can input their class and name, and converse in a group chatroom.

How I built it

Our team worked together with GitHub. I (Peter) worked on the server framework and css, Atharv worked on the login system, and Chris worked on the chatroom proper. We all worked predominantly in javascript and html.

Challenges I ran into

We were unable to connect the login and chatroom functionality, but both are fully functional individually.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

This was our first hackathon, and we came very close to making a functional webapp with no prior experience.

What I learned

How to use git on windows, some javascript, some html, and integrating our code with existing libraries.

What's next for APC Chat

We will work to produce webapps inspired by this, possibly reusing some of the code.
