Girls++ is an organization that builds a strong network of women in Computer Science. We believed in their message of empowering women to take a lead in the tech industry, an industry that is primarily male dominated. After seeing their challenge, we believed that we could help them by building a website that could broaden their reach for new members.
What it does
The Girls++ website allows prospective members to register, generating a profile on PowerApps. It also allows officers to take attendance at meetings and gather feedback. Members can also apply to be officers through the website.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We had trouble trying to create and store information on a database. We tried MongoDB and Azure Cosmos DB, but we could not get it to work properly.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are proud of creating a streamlined and user friendly web application that is aesthetically pleasing.
What we learned
We learned a lot about front end web development, and the basics of backend web development.
What's next for Girls++ Website
We are looking to add the ability for each member to upload their schedule onto the website, which Girls++ can use to determine the best time to hold meetings. We are also want to add a study buddy matcher tool, which will help members find other members to study with.
