About the project

Inspiration

Walking on the Broward College Central Campus, you may notice a game or two of chess. However, there is no way to track the score or schedule games. Also, many students are not aware of this great opportunity to not only play chess but meet new friends.

What it does

So, our team decided to create inChess Broward. inChess Broward is a web app to get the community together in games of chess. Anyone can easily find a location on the Broward College Central Campus to schedule a chess game based on their preferred skill level. Also, this app will keep track of winners on the leaderboard. inChess Broward will bring new friends together and develop analytical skills.

How we built it

inChess Broward was built using Python, Flask, MongoDB, Canva, Draw.io, and GitHub

Challenges we ran into

The challenges we ran into were time management and learning new technologies in a short time frame.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Accomplishments that we're proud of are creating an easy navigation of the web app and the logo.

What we learned

From this project, we learned about collaborating on Github using Flask web development to build our web app quickly and MongoDb to set up and use our database

What's next for inChess

The future of inChess Broward will include not only all Broward College campuses but also community locations such as parks, libraries, and other public access spots. Finally, inChess Broward will allow players from all around the world to play for free in big tournament internet chess games. inChess Broward will create opportunities for community and connection for everyone.
