Mentorli is a website that allows mentees make meaningful connections with mentors to help them start their career. I made this website with a fellow student for our capstone project. I feel like this website can make a very large impact not only for mentees, but for mentors and companies as well.
We used plain old Django as our web framework, but we decided to go with React on the front end. We went with React because my colleague was very familiar with it, and I also wanted to learn something new! To facilitate React, we used the Django REST framework to create an API for getting and posting data. This project gave me a tremendous amount of experience with React and also how to create an API.
