It started as a joke.
"What if we made a dating website for coders?" "Haha like FarmersOnly?" "Yeah CodersOnly."
Except instead of helping you get a date, this website aims to help you collaborate.
What it does
This website allows users to create a profile showcasing their skills and project ideas, and find other users to collaborate with.
How we built it
We built it using Wordpress, as well as plugins such as Buddypress and Elementor. One of our team members is a talented artist, and she created our webpage's art using Adobe Illustrator.
Challenges we ran into
We went through several different hosting servers that had SQL and PHP compatible with the plugin we were working with, BuddyPress. Each time something would break and we'd have to start all over, but we finally found something that worked, and it hasn't broken yet (fingers crossed!)
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We all came in with very little web development knowledge, and we're leaving with a website.
What we learned
We learned a ton about web development, servers, and got a glance at what wordpress is capable of (more than I thought!)
What's next for CodersOnly
There's still so much to be done to implement our ideas: • Improving the layout • Automatically filtering other users' profiles based on your profile • Adding groups (users can create and chat with groups on the website itself)
