- Black History Month Essays - February
Using CakePHP, I built a database that students could enter essays into easily. We ran these essays in print and online through February.
- Get To Know Me
Using CakePHP, I built a database that people could enter profiles of themselves into with a multi-part webform. This has administrative capabilities on the administrative side, to allow editors to approve profiles, add questions and categories, and moderate all content. Previously this content was entered into a category in our content management system, but with far less organization and searchability. The entries are reverse published for the print column in the newspaper.
- Most Wanted
In cooperation with Rockford CrimeStoppers, I built a database (using CakePHP) of wanted felons that can be easily administered to display the most up-to-date information.
