Developer's Notes
The event finder was created to help ease the woes of having to find events all throughout Chicagoland. This was a fun project because it drove people to it solely by need. Constructing this layout was a no-brainer--making sure each user could sort, save, and add to their calendar created a user experience unlike no other.
