Hackjudge — From Inception to Application

An event managing application developed in-house at GDSC VIT to create and manage events from start to finish.

  1. The participant’s side for letting participants/teams submit their ideas [the “hack” part]
  1. My backend API was never tested by a frontend dev, so I was never too sure of the fact that all routes that were needed by the frontend were made by me
  1. They can create a team (which generates a unique team code)
  2. The team code can be shared for letting others request to join your team
  3. The team leader (who created the team) can allow participants to join and also remove already made members
  4. The leader can submit the idea, edit it and also delete the team
  5. Emails are sent when someone joins the team or leaves the team or when the team is deleted [made using Amazon’s SMS]

  1. A route that lets you send a JSON with all details for your admin portal and the route pushes the respective data to its attributes in the database and then you can use the UI to score your participants and review the teams.
