After a suggestion by @caleb about adding a backup font for Students Who Code, I finally fixed the website and there is now a backup font!
image.png
Added an Under Construction alert on the Reset Password, since the form isn't working right now. Yesterday I looked at what type of students signed up for Students Who Code, it was interesting to look at this data!
image.pngimage.png
A project was sent in to Coding Connected, so I worked on adding it to the Featured Projects list! I also fixed the Coding Connected Promo so it is more clear that the icons are links.
image.png
I have planned out what I am going to work on tonight for Students Who Code, since I wasn't able to code today
screen_shot_2020-07-27_at_8.05.51_pm.png
Fixed the Submit Project form so that way it asks for the project name. Took time to record things that needed to be fixed so that way I could start working on them this week.
screen_shot_2020-07-26_at_8.00.45_pm.png
Fixed the link in Coding Connected, so the Code Masters form goes to the new Airtable form.
screen_shot_2020-07-25_at_7.08.14_pm.png
After moving the submit projects form to airtable yesterday, I decided to also move the Code Masters sign up form to airtable so everything is in one place!
screen_shot_2020-07-24_at_6.50.31_pm.png
After launching Students Who Code yesterday I uncovered that the Submit Projects form was not working properly. I decided that instead of php I would use an Airtable form instead, which I think will work better!
screen_shot_2020-07-23_at_5.08.27_pm.png
Today was a very successful day! I launched Students Who Code, and so far it is doing great! Thank you everyone at Hack Club for your feedback. I have been fixing small bugs that appear and have designed an alert to warn users about features that are down or not working. If you have any feedback on Students Who Code let me know!(studentswhocode.org)

Hey everyone! After several months in the making and tons of advice and help, I am proud to announce the Students Who Code is now live! Students Who Code allows users to sign up to get free course about computer science and learn different coding languages. Due to the lack of computer science education, Students Who Code goal is to increase students access to computer science and coding lessons. Alongside our courses, Students Who Code has developed, Coding Connected; a community for users to share projects they have made, get help from Code Masters to ask questions or to get advice, and to participate in different events. Right now we are only rolling out 6 courses, mainly based around HTML/CSS with advanced and new languages coming within the next couple weeks and month. Please check it out and let me know what you think! Students Who Code | studentswhocode.org

Hi! I am creating a website and IOS app called "Students Who Code". Students Who Code will allow new coders access to free and easy courses(for students who don't want to pay or don't have access to CS education). And a page/feature called "Coding Connected" which will allow the users to chat with, Code Masters (high school coders) to get help and feedback and to submit projects. The website is almost done and will be launched soon! The IOS app is what I plan to work on during Summer of Making! It will include a place to track your projects, create to do lists for coding, and get access to our Coding Connected features! This will be my first time building a Swift app! This is a rough concept of the home page for the app
