I’m developing my course scheduling web application in the open. Yikes. This is largely a good thing because it’s forcing me to treat this project like I would treat a graded class project i.e. commenting appropriately, designing smartly, etc. I’m hoping that developing in the ‘open’ will help my growth as a developer by others providing constructive criticisms or recommendations. I’m all ears. 🙂
In the meantime, you can play with the latest iteration here: Course Picker and check out my code on Github.
Coming together quite nicely, if I say so myself. 🙂
I initially wanted to make the requests happen via AJAX but time constraints make it so I’m going to do everything via ‘regular’ HTTP requests a.k.a. not AJAX. That’ll be revisited for the second iteration of the application.
For now, the schedule display works and I’m able to query my database on the backend for the required courses & populate the drop down menus.
TODO: work on the addition of new sections to the user’s list of sections.
Note: I came up with this first iteration but the final product looks much different from this version mainly UI changes from another student.
