Kalin Kochnev and I are officers of the Robotics Club at our high school. Our 2020 season was cut short by the COVID 19 Pandemic. We really wanted to be able to grow our club in the coming season, but we could be pretty sure that the usual school-wide event where clubs set up booths to attract prospective members would not be able to run.

Kalin came to me with the idea for a virtual club fair, and while I am not a web app expert by any measure, I was happy to help where I could.

Initially, I helped with some of the mockup creation and functional design. I knew enough JS to get started learning react and developing skeleton pages for the major parts of the site. Kalin worked on the Django backend, authentication and REST API. We are currently getting ready to launch the site.
