The Why

While in college, I noticed the process through which students find off-campus housing can be nerve racking and is overall not a very enjoyable experience.

The How

Provide students with a place to see all their options and enable them to contact the land lord or property manager without having to leave the listing website.

Brief History

In march of 2017, I created Student Cribz (then called Temple Cribs). In order to release the product as quickly as possible I decided that WordPress, with a custom theme, should be used in order to quickly get off the ground. During the summer of 2017 I taught myself Python and Django, and during the 2017-18 winter break rebuilt the Student Cribz from the ground up using these technologies.
