“Private Planner: making connections near you.”

Destiny N, Perrfection P, Alexis E, Angeline F

Private Planner provides an easy way for boarding and private school students to make connections through their different interests. Schools can add events including the date, time, location, and description of the event, then other students can view them! Private Planner makes meeting new people and getting involved simple and fun!

Private Planner tackles a problem that many boarding school students face: making connections.

We make it easy to find events happening near you by allowing schools to post community activities.

One technical problem we faced was finding a way to merge all of the different changes and updates occurring on each of our contributors’ computers. However, our most challenging obstacle was learning Ruby on Rails, a new language for us. We overcame it by working together and looking up tips and guidelines online.

“We make 'mandatory fun' not-so-mandatory.”
