Our team overcame enormous hurdles including some strange CSS that refused to load. The final result was an incredible app in which recruiters could enter questions and the system would include automatically in a phone interview screen. One area of technology that I would recommend improving would be Twilio's Python library. Our solution required a dynamic series of questions and recorded answers. Initially we tried to use the Python library to create <Say> and <Record> loops but had to abandon this approach. Instead we generated Twiml and used a counter and loop between two different functions in Python. While it is unclear whether this was the best or only solution, I would definitely enjoy the ability to embed multiple <Record> sections within a <Say> tag as well as generate them dynamically within the Python Library.
Overall, aur team's app was a huge success! As Darden's first team to compete at the UVaHackathon, we clearly demonstrated that MBAs can code!! Lastly, our team was sponsored by the Darden Technology Club. Thank you to Gal and the rest of the DTC for your support!!
