Description as a Tweet:

Initiate-24 is an all-in-one chrome extension that promotes productivity and efficiency for college students.

Inspiration:

With online learning going on, it is hard to keep track of all zoom links, class deadlines and schedule when everything is online and so creating a web extension that keep track of all college essentials could help students out in their career.

What it does:

Initiate-24 is an organizer that allows user to input notes, goals (todos), tab their go-to links and perform other functions that are useful to college students.

How we built it:

I build my project with the manifest.json file, background script files, index html file with css style references files.

Technologies we used:

  • HTML/CSS
  • Javascript

Challenges we ran into:

The first challenge that I faced was that I was completely new to the language and computer science in general. I was not very familiar with javascript and learning the language took a while. I also faced a challenge of formatting the website since I made too many different files and formats. I also struggled with the menu icon bar and that I wasn't sure how to make it clickable(work) and display the widget that I created.

Accomplishments we're proud of:

I was actually very proud that I had something since this was my first time ever computer science project and I only learned the language for 5 days. I was also very proud that I tried to make things work and did not give up.

What we've learned:

I learned some basics HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I also learn about software engineering and webpage/app architecture as that was important while building a webpage. I also learned that trial and error works pretty well while creating the project as well.

What's next:

I plan on learning the basics of JavaScript and CSS while continuing with HTML. For this project, I will use that knowledge to rebuild it because I did not like the formatting nor the way the website looked. I had an initial idea of making a 2 page extension and I will try to see if that idea work. The final thing I want to do for this project is to put it up on the chrome web store and make it an actual extension for students to use.

Built with:

Visual Studio Code.

  • Fujifilm Instax Mini 11 Instant Film Camera, Sky Blue
  • Hydroflasks
  • Amazon Echos
  • Apple AirPods 3rd Gen
