Description of my final project

Project Name: Olympus PC Builder

Olympus is a PC building application designed for both the novice and expert PC builders alike. Users can browse computer parts by a number of filters or search for them with the search bar. Once a user finds a part they like, the user can add the part to an online draft; ultimately creating a build. Each part that is added is paired against the existing parts within the build and checked for compatibility. The user is alerted of what and why a part is not compatible. Once finished with the build, the user is presented with a total price and has the choice to customize their build page with uploaded photos of the finished build, a name and a description. The user may create as many builds as they like. Aside from the build aspect of the application, users may also review parts and upvote community builds; allowing other users to make a more informed decision on their build. We also implemented a blog on the site to share relative tech news and updates.
