Typically, the only way to get know other people in you major was if you shared a class with them. The amount of people you knew in your major was restricted to the one in your class rank. We wanted to change and broaden the connections we could make in our school.
What it does
Our product allows you to create a profile, inserting the skills, classes, and your major so it can connect you to people with similar data.
How we built it
We built this with Django and python as the back end. The front end was with Google's css framework, Materialize.
Challenges we ran into
We had issues syncing our work on github. Three different people trying to work on the same project made certain files corrupt in the process.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We managed to set up the login and authentication system for the project. It stores the data and allows people to login and log out.
What we learned
We learned Django.
What's next for College Connect
