What it does

ClouDraw allows multiple users to simultaneously draw on the same pixel-art image. Users can choose to collaborate, or sabotage each others' plans!

How we built it

Despite very little prior WebDev experience, we hacked this together using Javascript (Vanilla, to the chagrin of many around us) and a Django Webserver.

Challenges we ran into

Lack of Javascript knowledge for both of us was a huge impediment. Even the simplest statement could be a huge hangup as we consulted online guides for syntax and the numerous quirks of the language.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We managed to hack this thing together despite very little knowledge beforehand. We learned new languages, platforms, and concepts on the fly. And ultimately it is pretty fun to draw with our site.

What we learned

As mentioned above, we learned a lot of Javascript, about GET/POST calls, and about the general structure of the web.

What's next for ClouDraw

We may try to expand the idea to be more robust and engaging, or move on to other projects.
