Code

(Fall 2015)

Technologies used: Flask, SQL, Semantic-UI

About the Project

“The goal of this app is to facilitate more interactivity between the leadership (national and regional admins) and the community of military women. The current website is very flat and mainly displays information. The admins want to learn more about the community (where they are, what they care about) so they can figure out how to better help military women.”

About the Client: Women Veterans Rock

“Women Veterans Rock is a Coalition of Women Veteran Organizations and Women Advocacy Organizations Supporting Women Veterans & Military Families in The Areas of: Housing; Employment; Education; Financial Stability; Health & Wellness.”

You can find a link to their website here.

Impact

“Women Veterans Rock has a 10 year commission, beginning in 2010. For the first 5 years, the focus has been on connecting veterans to jobs, resources, housing. Now they are halfway through, and the mindset is maturing into thinking about what happens after 2020 when the commission ends.”
