During the "How to Think About Your Career by KPCB" workshop, we were told that the best ideas help small businesses strive and gain exposure. For some reason, I then remembered how accustomed I am to getting bored so I thought why not create a website that connects me to local events that are not greatly publicized?

What it does

Eventable is a new and innovative solution to solve everybody's common problem: boredom. By providing local businesses the chance to publicize their small events, we not only help create exposure, but we also make sure the community is informed. Whether you're looking for a night out to party or a motivational speech, Eventable connects you to the adventures that are ignored. So if you ever feel as if your town is too ordinary, don't worry: Eventable is just a click away!

How I built it

We used Notepad++ to compile our data and code. We mainly coded in HTML/CSS with the occasional PHP and JavaScript. We also made our logo and buttons on Adobe's Photoshop.

Challenges I ran into

Centering our text and images was definitely one of our biggest issues.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

None of us had prior experience with HTML/CSS. We visited a Web Development workshop but that was really it. We designed an entire website in about 14 hours and managed to do so with minimal knowledge of the language.

What I learned


What's next for Eventable

Linking the website to a database to actually store the events posted onto the site. Also, adding more categories available and creating a complete Calendar page. This is just a work in progress so we just designed the interface.
