Ordinateur was inspired after reading an article about the Seattle struggles for students to gain access to computers. I felt intrigued by the problem and wanted to see if I could do something about it. Like most people, I use my computer every day, whether its for school or for fun. At Ordinateur, it is our mission to provide students with computers and tablets through a donate and give solution. First, a donator will contact us through our website and send us the information regarding the laptop/tablet and their contact information. We will then determine whether the electronic fits our needs and is still in good condition. We plan to partner with school districts across the country who have trouble accessing government funds. We will then directly ship the computers from the donator to the user with no cost to the donator and school. Expanding our company, we can give donators a tax back as an incentive to give back to the community through our website.

One of the main things that I found myself wondering when I first decided on the idea, was what is a electronic without wifi. After some research, I found that XFINITY has set up free hotspots across the US. Not only that, people using xfinity can volunteer there house to become a hotspot for free wifi.

In such a short time, I didn't know if I had enough time to develop a full blown website which is why I decided to use Figma to plan out my website and design. I discovered Figma through a youtuber and since it was free, decided to test it out today. After getting used to the basic features, it was fun and sparked a creative knob that I didn't know I had. After using the documentation, I also discovered Figma can easily covert your designs into full fledged hard code. In the upcoming days, I will try to use my designs to actually build a website in HTML and CSS. Link here:https://www.figma.com/file/uoeZ1ERkKMG35niV9gLPnh/Ordinateur?node-id=0%3A1

A few challenges I faced included figuring out how to mask an object over another and drawing different shapes using the pen tool. After playing around, I eventually figured it out.
