So we have a web app. I will be live demo-ing it to my fellow WDI-ers in a couple of hours.
In the shake up we lost at least half the intended feature set, but much of that can be added in the coming weeks I hope.
As a process this has been an incredible learning experience that has brought me closer to the code, my computer and my classmates and I am pretty delighted to have done it.
So - quick look around:
You can look back at the wireframes to see how close (or not) I came to realising the initial idea.
- Debugging, working in Rails Console
- Getting orientated with a Rails Project
- Talking in code, conversing with my computer
- Github: committing early and making it work
- Twitter Bootstrap and Font Awesome!
- Development of my design approach from the earlier MTA Lab project
- Trying to realise a concept, having a roadmap
- Deploying to Heroku
- Multiple Records
- Working with two site layouts
- Couple of tough nights getting the models working, IDs flowing and tables talking
- HAML - need a night on this
- Multiple records
- Web scraping
- Google Maps integration
- Email to Guest
- Add Progress Bar, remove secondary nav
- Share links
- About Page
Some huge thanks are in order on this - Joel Turnbull, Dan Tsui, all my classmates at WDI, Matt Thees for his CSS ninjitsu, Jen Taunts.
You can read about the project's tech on Github - the only thing I will add here is a credit to Bootswatch. I didn't use their theme, but I ripped the colour palette straight from their awesome Amelia template.
