We wanted a quick and easy way to connect people with no hacking experience to people who have experience in a fun way. We also wanted another way to connect coders with each other.

What it does

Hackers Hangout is a new social platform that allows you to share projects, get technical help, and work with friends or strangers.

How we built it

We first planned out our design using JamBoard by Google which is an online whiteboard, from here we separated pages for each individual to complete within a given time. We used langugaes such as: HTML, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript, NodeJS and MongoDB.

Challenges we ran into

We mainly had issues with fixing our host server and time. Not everybody was able to meet up at once due to time constraints and busy schedules but we were able to work it out and have everyone get parts of the project done.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud for how we worked as a team to overcome challenges. We also expanded our horizons and attempted to create a database in the back-end using NodeJS, MongoDB, and other software (Postman, Robo 3T) but were unable to figure it all out in time. However, we started it and still have it published on our Github for reference.

What we learned

We learned how to create routes in NodeJS, though we didn't get everything working. We polished and practiced our skills in the front-end using HTML, CSS, and a little bit of JavaScript. We learned how to work with our teams' schedules to work on our project.

What's next for Hackers Hangout

We hope to develop Hackers Hangout into the new modern Stack Overflow which can cater to new and experience coders growing the community as a whole together.
