Event Card Component

Design and implement a responsive, reusable card layout for an event planning website.

3-5 hours

About This Project


Your objective is to design these cards following specific design guidelines, ensuring they can be reused efficiently across the application. The cards should be responsive, interactive, and capable of loading dynamic data.

You may use any tools you wish in order to build the frontend.


  • Construct Reusable Event Cards: Develop cards that encapsulate key event information — name, date, location, and time — and can be used in different layouts across the website.
  • Ensure Responsiveness: The card layout must adapt to different screen sizes, providing an optimal viewing experience on desktops, tablets, and mobile phones.
  • Dynamic Data Integration: Use JavaScript to dynamically populate the cards with event data, enhancing the site's interactivity and user engagement.
  • Interactive Elements: Incorporate interactive elements such as RSVP buttons, which react to user interactions with visual feedback (hover and focus states).

User Stories

  1. Event Information Accessibility: As a user, I want to see key details of each event organized neatly on a card so I can quickly decide which events are of interest.
  2. Interactive Feedback: As a user, I expect all interactive elements like buttons to have distinct hover and focus states, providing a smooth navigation experience.
  3. Adaptive Design: As a user, I want the event cards to automatically adjust to my device's screen size, ensuring a consistent and comfortable viewing experience across all devices.

Acceptance Criteria

  • Card Design: Each card must visually match the provided design specifications and include specified event details.
  • Responsiveness: Cards should maintain their layout and functionality across screen sizes from mobile devices to desktop monitors.
  • Dynamic Content: Event data loaded into cards must reflect accurate details and update correctly as new data becomes available.
  • Interactivity: RSVP buttons must respond to user actions with immediate visual feedback.

Stretch Goals

To go above and beyond, consider adding one or more of the following features:

  • Home Page Layout: Display multiple event cards alongside one another on the home page, matching the provided designs, using either Grid or Flexbox.
  • RSVP Functionality: Allow users to RSVP to events directly from the card and display a visual confirmation of the RSVP status.
  • Event Filtering and Sorting: Add features to filter events by type (e.g., online, in-person) or topic, and sort them by date or name to enhance user experience.
  • Accessibility Enhancements: Make sure the website adheres to accessibility standards, including keyboard navigation and screen reader support.

Starter Materials

To help you get started, you're equipped with the following assets:

  • Project Images: Necessary image files, including Buggsy's logo and icons, are provided. The files are in svg format to improve performance.
  • Style Guide: A comprehensive guide provided by Buggsy, detailing color schemes, fonts, and other design elements to align your navigation menu with the brand's aesthetic.
  • Preview Images: Visual benchmarks to guide your design to completion.
  • Figma File: Leverage design files in Figma as a blueprint for your development efforts.

Skills Practiced

  • HTML: Application of semantic HTML to structure event cards effectively.
  • CSS: Use of advanced layout techniques, responsiveness through media queries, and interactive states with pseudo-elements.
  • JavaScript: Handling of dynamic data loading, DOM manipulation, and event interactions.
  • JS Frameworks (optional): Component creation, state management, and props handling for those opting to use React, Vue, or Angular.
  • Version Control: Use Git for version control, documenting your development process and changes.


Why should I build this project instead of one from scratch?

In a professional context, you're rarely starting from scratch. Curricular Projects are designed to give you a constrained real world problem so you can focus on practicing the essential skills you'll use as a professional developer, and to surface specific areas to continue studying.

Can I get help if I'm stuck on a project?

Our projects are designed to be a real world assessment of your skills, like the take home assignment during a job interview. Getting yourself unstuck is part of the skills measured. As a result, we offer very little help and direction.

However, if you encounter issues with the setup, or if you find something isn't working right that should be working, you can contact us at and we'll help you out.

Do you provide official solutions to projects?

We do not provide official solutions to projects. There are many ways to solve each of our projects. Coding is a journey, so our goal isn't for you to get the "right answer." Instead, our projects are about you flexing your skills to arrive at a solution, practicing talking about your code, and giving you helpful feedback on ways to improve.

Can I get feedback on my work?

Currently, we only provide feedback on capstone projects, through our Code Review service.

The Code Review is a premium service available as an add-on purchase, combining an in-depth review of your code and a practice interview. If your project passes the review and meets all specifications, you'll receive a certificate of completion.

Where can I ask a question that isn't answered here?
