Web App Progress

It is now the last week of uni before Easter, and so I would like to be more or less finished with our web app by the end of this week, as I have no access to the dakar server over easter.

I have almost finished the php and backend database work for the project, although there are a few problems which I’m struggling to figure my way around. I’m hoping these will be sorted out in the next few days. All the code I have done so far has been uploaded to github. Billy has been working on the css for our site, and I think he’s almost finished, although he hasn’t uploaded the files to github so I’m not exactly sure how far on he is. The third member of our group, Bankole, is yet to contribute anything towards the website, and rarely turns up to our workshops.

This has made completing the project on time fairly stressful, as it is a lot of work to do between two people, but if we spend a lot of time on it this week it should hopefully be finished by Friday.




Meeting My Group

This week we were put into the groups that we will be working in for this project,  and set the task of creating an about page in HTML and CSS, to introduce each member of the group.
My group consists of myself, Billy, and Banks. We met during a break in our timetable to get to know each other, and begin thinking about the bios. We decided to use github to share the code

I uploaded the first commit to Git, which consisted of basic html and css for our page, but had no real content in it.

Billy then took the code and edited it to be more personal for our group, before uploading it as a second commit to git.

Red lines indicate lines of code which were removed, and green indicates lines which are added.

I then took this code and played about with the css to make it more visually appealing, and uploaded it to my dakar server.

I am very pleased with the outcome of this page, as I think it looks quite good, and I learnt more about hover effects while making it. It also gave me the opportunity to get to know the members of my group better.
