Senior Projects 2014 Villanova Volleyball Registration Website

Last year, the Block-It Scientists were hired to create a Villanova Volleyball Summer Camp Registration website, which allows aspiring volleyball players to sign up for a 4 day summer camp with Villanova's Head Volleyball Coach, Josh Steinbach. We initially built the site using WordPress but we have now decided to restructure the site from the ground up using some tools that are new to us such as JavaScript, HTML, CSS, PHP and Twitter Boostrap. Using WordPress and some of its free plug-ins was effective, but we had to sacrifice some functionality and control in order to get our site up and running as quickly as possible. While WordPress was an outstanding tool to use for the first time around, we would like to experiment with rebuilding and redesigning the site from our own code, which in the long run, will give us more control of our site and hopefully better usability, functionality and visibility for users, administrators and developers. Along the way, we will be drawing comparisons between the two different implementations to see which version is more applicable and efficient.
