🏗️How we built it🏗️
We built WallStreetSpy with Django, Python, Heroku CLI, GoDaddy, HTML/CSS, and Bootstrap. We used getform API for the contact form and used VS Code Live share to work on the project.
With Heroku for hosting,
🚧Challenges we ran into🚧
We were attempting to incorporate Auth0 APIs into our website, but it repeatedly crashed, and we subsequently discovered that the login button was not directing us to the main page. We also had a hard time hosting the domains we registered for, but we eventually figured it out.
✅Accomplishments that we're proud of✅
We are happy to create a project, work collaboratively as a team, and manage our features to work quickly and on schedule. Even though we had time zone differences, we managed to work together simultaneously and film the video clearly for everyone. Still, all of the team efficiently made distinct contributions to progress the project and the pitch.
🙋♂️What we learned🙋♂️
We learned a lot this weekend. We learned —
- How to develop fast, scalable, and simple web applications
- How using Django helps us build backends easily.
- How to deploy a backend with Heroku and use GoDaddy as a service provider.
- We learned a lot about Python and Django debugging silly errors in our code and how to manage our limited time efficiently.
- And finally, there was a lot we learned from each other and MLH over the weekend.
💭What's next for WallStreetSpy💭
Prospects include an escape game wherein an agent attempts to reach Wall Street to infiltrate the stock market while dodging laser lights. The number of laser lights dodged would determine the discount the user can get on various items. We plan to add more products and introduce a spy mode on the website. Toggling the spy mode will change the color theme of the website and uncover the hidden discount game.
