Last year, one of the hacks that got an award was a 3-D model of the SoHacks logo. That is a hack that helped the team here and I hope that this one might also. As I was signing up, I was looking for some items on the website that weren't there. This is the problem that I am trying to solve.
What it does
This hack includes parts of the previous website that I thought did their job, but also includes other features, such as more information and a better layout. More information includes SoHacks team info, and a tentative schedule.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
As I mentioned, I couldn't find a good website builder, which took a couple of hours. I started to build a website, but when I moved working spots, the website didn't save. I then had to start over, getting all of the text and graphics back on. In addition, by email wouldn't work so that I couldn't coordinate all of the sites that I needed to work on this project.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I was able to find a website builder, build a website that both looks similar to the current version and has the new features. I was also able to stay on task all of the time, excluding breaks.
What I learned
What's next for Improved Web
Some future improvements include: a map, showing the location of the current Hackathon, a walk-around map system (similar to Google Maps Street View) to show off the area (if the hackathon stays at one location), and a system to show were secluded workstations are and if they are occupied. All of these are helpful tools that would improve the efficiency and quality of the hacking.
