Voting sucks, we're looking to make it better.
What it does
Instead of having just one vote you can instead order candidates in your favorite order. Depending on how most people have ordered their candidates the mos popular candidate gets chosen.
How we built it
We built it using reactjs front end and django backend with graphQL and a sqlLite DB
Challenges we ran into
Picking the right software for the backend. We started off using elixir, scrapped it to build it in express and mysql instead, and then scrapped that to use django and sqllite.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The amount of stuff we learned about databases and the usage of graphql as well as database designing]
What we learned
Databases, graphql and more databases
What's next for hay-vote!
Private polls, a detailed break down of the votes, dropping of the detailed users to maintain anonymity and privacy.
