Maritza Castaneda

Hello! My name is Maritza Castaneda and I am currently a senior this year in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering. I am majoring in Informatics with minors in Human-Centered Computing and Public and Environmental Affairs. I am really passionate about front-end development as well as focusing on the usability of technology and applications.

This is my fourth and final semester being involved in the Serve IT Clinic. I am currently the team lead for the Orange County Recycling Co-Op (OCRC) team in the clinic. The OCRC team is a client team working to design and develop a functional and easy-to-use website for the Orange County Recycling Co-Op organization, which is located in Paoli, Indiana.

At this point in the semester, our team has gone through several design iterations after meeting with our client and the Serve IT Design and User Testing team. Since our prototype has been finalized, we have been working on developing the website and making it responsive on multiple device screens. Within our site, we have also added a Volunteer form and a Membership form for interested candidates looking to get involved with the organization. We hope our website will help to get the word out about Orange County Community Co-Op and its mission to promote the value of recycling.
