The codeathon has ended

The 48 hour Codeathon has officially ended. You can follow what we've done by checking out the tweets for #CICodeathon. The code still needs a few touchups, but it's all open-source on GitHub.

What will the code do?

The code developed during the 48 hour Codeathon will be a tool to facilitate the matching of parents of children with autism to potential ABA therapists. The application, called ABA Lookup, is the first of its kind, and will not only match parents and ABA therapists based on location, certification, and gender preference, but it will also take into consideration scheduling and availability. The web app will include a graphical schedule component, which will list therapists' availability. For parents of children with autism, the process of finding ABA therapists can take weeks, if not months. It is our hope - and end goal - that this tool will shorten the ABA and parent matching process exponentially.

What is a codeathon?

During the course of 48 hours, members of the Memorial University Computer Science Society designed, developed, and began testing a web-based application. Our senior members lead the lesser experienced to produce a product that is both visually appealing and functional. The MUN Computer Science Society's Community Initiative is a not-for-profit event, and all students involved are volunteering their time and skills for the selected cause.
