After waking up one morning to a complicated message thread between friends on the topic of which May Ball to attend in 2013, James was struck with the idea of creating a simple table containing details of every May Ball in an easy-to-read format. A few hours later, WhichMayBall was born and released into the world, and its features continue to grow as quickly as James and his team can develop them.
