Projects

Christagram
Alex Peattie set us the task of making an instagram clone with ruby on rails. I used paperclip to upload the photographs and stored them on AWS. You can sign up to the site with an e-mail address or log in using Facebook. I used the Omniauth gem for facebook log in. Christagram is online here check it out!
Dog Eared Pages
A site to share your favorite three books with Twitter. I used the Amazon and Twitter API's to get the data i needed and built a great looking mobile page with swipe control. an version control. The site is up and running and on the first day it was visited by over 300 people on the first day! Why not Give it a go!.
Sudoku
I was challenged by Enrique Comba Riepenhausen to make a sudoku game written in ruby and built on the Sinatra framework. The app generates a random Sudoku which allows you to input the missing number, if you input the wrong number it highlights yellow. Click here! to give it a go!
