We wanted to make it easier for students to find classes that are within a walkable distance to make the class registration process easier for the students.
What it does
It finds class information for GA Tech classes using the class department code, course number, and section identifier.
How we built it
We used Java for the course information lookup by connecting to GA Tech's OSCAR course information system.
Challenges we ran into
We are currently unable to connect the Java back-end logic to the website, and we are still working to resolve this. We also were unable to make a runnable jar file. So if you would like to use our "lookup" code, then please install all the necessary dependencies on your own. Sorry!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were successfully pull data from the OSCAR system using specific queries and parse the data that we were given.
What we learned
We learned how to scrape the websites, as well as some basic html and css, but we are still working to connect the front and back-end of our program.
What's next for GATechClassMapApp
We'll be continuing to work on our project until we have a finalized website that makes it convenient for students to find there classes on the map.
