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

- flask.ext.wtf WTF?!?!?!??!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?
Accomplishments that we're proud of
- Persevering through the night road block after road block!
- Working outside of our expertise

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!
