We've all had the lovely experience of waking up in the morning, ready to start another day of Zoom University. Too bad the Zoom prompt doesn't give you handy loading screen tips... But now it can! Just install our userscript, which can be used through Tampermonkey, and open a Zoom link of your own or visit isurelovetakingclasses.online to get that lovely loading screen experience before your next class at Zoom University.

How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We're very proud of the fact that we were able to not only create a fun website but also mimic Zoom's own website very well! During our development process we were also able to learn more about css and it's variety of properties (for example, box shadows), which was really amazing! Also, we were able to dig through Zoom's code to debug our userscript and we're especially proud of that!
What I learned
We didn't know how to create a userscript and make it interact with a webpage before this hackathon, and that was really cool to learn! We also learned a lot about looking through the source code for the Zoom website when debugging our userscript. When creating our website, we learned some new CSS features, such as using a "box-shadow" to create the grey line under the navigation bar. In addition, one of our teammates had never been to an MLH hackathon before, so this was a fun chance for them to learn about the hacker community.
What's next for I Sure Love Taking Classes Online
We plan to create our own Chrome/Firefox browser extension to add special messages and features to personalize your Zoom soon. In the meantime, we will be telling all our friends to install the userscript since it has the same functionality that a browser extension would. Beyond that, we hope to create more awesome websites for future hackathons. Our refreshed HTML/CSS experience will be helpful in that regard.
