Friday June 26th, 2015 is the day I have been working towards for the past six months. NSS Cohort 8 demo day starts tomorrow at 11 a.m. and lasts until 1 p.m. We will show off our Back-end and most likely our front-end apps.
My front-end app is not finished. I could not find an api that would give me what I wanted (for free anyway) so during the second half I built an API in Rails that would give me a simplified version of the info I needed. The front end is being made with Ember. Currently I am having an issue with the data being recieved by ember. It is not sent in an array I belive. But that is something to tackle over the weekend.
My back-end app is working however, and working quite well I believe. It is a small social networking app for NSS gradutes. I built it with my time limit in mind, so I would not be scambling to finish at the last minute. The only downside is that I feel like I did not push the boundaries of what I am capable of. It was started with all the features being tested, but some of the later and smaller features were not implemented with tests. Styling is atrocious. I admit that. I never claimed to be an expert and since it was a back-end app I focused on the Rails portion.
As I said before I am happy with what I have and If you would like to check it out it is at thegraduates.herokuapp.com
