Working from home has been hard - class timings, TA office hours are not fixed as they used to. Educators keep emailing students about change in time and also change zoom links. What does this entail ? A growing pile of emails, meaning a difficult place for you to find that zoom link right before that meeting or to even catch that reschedule notification at times!
What it does
Act as a centralized repository for all zoom meeting links per class which includes lectures, TA rooms, office hours, discussions and even student informal study rooms.
If they change a link or timing, its easy to join that meeting or track that change from zmate
Go ahead bring your entire class to zmate and let them join the class from there!

Continuous integration, continous development and 77 commits made to front end and backend.
Support for screen readers, eye trackers and large text
What I learned
Many of us were new to Ruby on Rails
What's next for Zmate
Integrate front end with more api end points and reach out to educators to get them on board our platform ;)
