Create a website for making events and giving marginalized groups a place for support.

Emma D., Lydia T., Mahlet T.

We made a website where people can create events and find a place of support. We want the site to be accessible to everyone, so you don't need to make an account to learn more about organizations or know about the events. We also want people to have the ability to connect with event organizers, and we feel that this website is the perfect way to do that.

There are many movements and causes out there and people need to get the word out about them somehow.
Not everyone is on social media and could miss out on something they have an interest in.
There isn’t a common area for people to create events for their movements and make a change.

Make a website where event organizers and social movements can create events on a website meant just for that.
We want it to be accessible to everyone, so you don’t need to make an account to know about an event or get involved.
We also want it to be a place where people can learn more about different social movements and a place of support for marginalized groups
We hope that this website will be one that organizations will want to use to get the word out for their events. We want organizations to trust this.

The front end database was not very reliable. The server would keep crashing and sometimes it would enter certain things a user inputs as “undefined”.
Uploading pictures was a huge challenge because I had to use Amazon Web Services and there were errors that my teachers and I couldn’t figure out.
The comment section didn’t work as planned because my function for showing comments was not working
The look and feel of the website could’ve been better if we had more time to focus on the design. It looks pretty bland right now.

For all three of us, this is our first time coding. We’ve enjoyed our time in the summer immersion program, and we all plan on coding more in our future.

Mahlet and Emma are rising seniors, and Lydia is a rising junior.

This project was made by Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program students at Groupon.
