CoursePlan is a product that has been a few years in the making. I helped my friend Boon Palipatanna kickstart this product in a hackathon, where we won for our very simple prototype of the product.

In this project, I have mostly been responsible for designing the UI palette.I have collaborated on my amazing co-designers Ein Chang and Shane Yun on the detailed course unit and the requirements sidebar.

I'm excited to see what we come up with moving forward!
