Technical festivals are great moments of college life.
I got a chance to handle an event in Technoaspire 2015 , VGEC‘s techfest.
It was just quiz but I have to provide participants nice user interface and had to store their data. Also server side validation was required because some ‘geek’ participants was expected who can see source code and mess up.
So I made following choices considering time limits and requirements:
- Back end : Django
- Database : Mysql
- Front end : AngularJS
- User Interface : bootstrap-material-design
- Deplyment : pythonAnyWhere
We started server on college intranet but as a backup I deployed on python anywhere.
Everything went well. We had to extend time during quiz but Django Admin Panel was there. We managed to update timer without instructing participants to refresh. Here is github repo and some screenshots.
