The Wellesley Ballroom Dance Team needed an efficient way to sort through our photos of costumes in the closet that didn't involve clicking through photobooks because those were unsorted and inefficient to go through. It also didn't let you know if the dress was available or not. We wanted to create a website because it would allow us to update it in the future to add more dresses and also have other functions that would make it easier for the costume coordinator to facilitate costume exchanges
What it does
It is an efficient way to find the dress for the competition season
How we built it.
Challenges we ran into
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're really proud that we managed to make a functional site that is usable for the future and can be developed further as needed. We're also really proud that we managed to get a handle on the coding languages necessary to make this project possible.
What we learned
We learned that trying to sort through data is hard and opensource coding is very helpful as a model.
What's next for WBDT Costume Armory
We hope to add a My Costume function to allow users to "check out" and request a copy digitally and update a living spreadsheet with each check out to move costumes into the unavailable section We also hope to move our data to API instead of having as a string in the code (whoops).
