Brontosaurus, A Platform for Managing Events and Users

https://github.com/hnuti-brontosaurus/bis-frontend
Brontosaurus is an event organization platform that focuses on preserving nature and ecology by organizing events for children, teenagers, families, and adults.

The platform is designed to be intuitive and user-friendly for both event attendees and organizers. Users can easily browse events, view event details, and sign up for events of interest.

Organizers can create events, manage participants and applications, as well as create volunteering opportunities for members of Brontosaurus.cz.

Working in a team of two, I was responsible for the entire process of designing, building, testing, and deploying the app. My main tasks included designing and implementing various components for managing app functionalities. I also added CSS styles to the whole app to make it visually appealing, easy to navigate, and accessible for users.

Given the importance of security, I worked closely with the back-end team to ensure the app was safe and connected the front-end with the API in Python Django. Throughout the project, I also tested the app and ensured all features worked correctly.
