Daily insights of a troubled student's life

What it does

Student Black Market connects students from all across the country in order to help them trade objects or services they are interested in. Think large: you have a deadline the next day and have no idea whatsoever how to solve it or no one to ask for help. With Student Black Market you can get help in no time from peers from every corner of the United Kingdom. Need a new desk or books your teacher asked for? You can trade with anyone on this easy-to-use and accessible platform.

How I built it

Using Django for the back-end and HTML/CSS for front-end

Challenges I ran into

A lot of debugging due to using Python and connecting the front-end to the back-end took quite some time. Also, uploading photos to a database proved quite difficult to do

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We finished the whole app as we fully planned it

What I learned

We learned a few tricks and workarounds in Django

What's next for StudentBlackMarket

We'll implement a chat and buy system for the app in order to help connect the students
