Inspiration

The NCWIT Aspirations in Computing Community includes thousands of women around the country. Incorporation of existing social media channels would leverage the networks and connections of the members. Build a stronger connection between an already powerful group of women!

How it works

A web app which integrates existing social media into a new avenue connecting new and existing members of NCWIT attending conferences.

Challenges we ran into

  • Different programming environments
  • Packages, packages, packages... PACKAGES
  • flask.ext.wtf WTF?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • Persevering through the night road block after road block!
  • Working outside of our expertise
  • Supporting our team members through the night
  • Learning from each other

What we learned

The intricacies of web development from the ground up. We have gained a new perspective on what it takes to build web applications from setting up back end infrastructure to design of front end interfaces. As a team of engineers with backgrounds in low level hardware to front end software, we had to allocate our diverse set of skills and step out of our comfort zones!
