Inspiration

It's hard sometimes to find a group to study with, and many study rooms require multiple people to be present to book.

What it does

Publishes open study groups for students to find others to study with

How we built it

We have an restful API server built in python using flask that has endpoints that any frontend client could access. We also built a front end client using another flask server to demonstrate the backend.

Challenges we ran into

We were originally planning to use angular and javascript to build the front end, but no members in the group had sufficient experience with either to do so, so we build both the front end and the back end using flask. We realised that user authentication was becoming a pain to implement, and not super important for the prototype, so we ditched it (although it's still there in the backend).

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're proud of the frontend/backend system that allows for the backend to be utilised by any frontend client

What we learned

Learning a good frontend framework might not be a bad idea!
