In school, especially this year considering the increased importance of online resources for school, there was never any software that was minimalist in design and always felt threatening. None felt easygoing, which is what I wanted to bring out through the front end. There was no better opportunity for that than this app.
What it does
It’s meant to provide a seamless connection between teachers and students through lecture notes being conveniently located in one central area.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Often times, Nathan and I would find merge conflicts when the both of us would commit the same work on the same part of the app. It sometimes became difficult to handle, especially when one of us lost an entire file of the app because of merge conflicts. Luckily, we stored that file locally as well, meaning that we could fix the conflict easily.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We made a very effective login and server handling system together in the span of a day, which the two of us never accomplished before. We’ve worked on projects before this, but we’ve never built something to this scale in a constrained amount of time like this.
What we learned
We learned to work effectively through our partnership and we learned to bring our fortes out through this project. We also learned to tackle issues in an effective and efficient manner to make the most out of our time.
What's next for Lectured
We plan on rebasing the code in order for it to work more efficiently and up to date with languages like React and Express used today and we plan on making it usable for a wider variety of educational groups.
