Clubs and societies are a vital part of student life. The University of Sydney has more than 200 student societies, the largest in Australia. The absence of a central app that collects information about the time, dates and venues of the events run by all the societies that a student has joined makes it inconvenient for students to stay up to date with society gatherings.

What it does

USYDynamic is a website that collects information about the societies that a student has joined, and adds the event details on a personalised calendar for the student. It also includes a recommendation feature to recommend new clubs that aligns with the students uses - with over 200 clubs, it's hard to manually keep track of them all!

How we built it

We used HTML, CSS and javascript to design the front end of the website. We used Photoshop and Sketch to make logos and UI design.

Challenges we ran into

Extracting data from Facebook and USU, developing an API with Python to transfer data to the webpage.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Making a user friendly graphical UI.

What we learned

Time management, adequate planning beforehand and more structured role delegations.

What's next for USYDynamic

Improving the recommendation algorithm to include friend suggestions, etc. Expanding the idea to other universities.
