We wanted to create an application that helps Rutgers students find relevant information, including classes.

What it does

It uses the class data from web-reg and can find classes based on major, course level, and course number as well as providing helpful links for students based on their needs.

How we built it

We build it using python and the discord API

Challenges we ran into

We initially wanted to organize the data using Elasticsearch on AWS but there were many issues uploading the JSON file to Elasticsearch so we could not do that. Parsing the JSON also posed difficulties.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We learned a lot about how to ways we can use AWS in our projects.

What we learned

We learned much about how to create with AWS, even though it did not work out in the end, it is the beginning of a new way of creating for us.

What's next for RutgersBot

We plan to use AWS Elasticsearch to better organize the data and use AI in order to make the bot more conversational.
