Here you will find information about whatever projects I am currently working on. These projects will typically be associated with some sort of 100 Days of Code challenge. If you are interested in learning about my philosophy when it comes to these types of challenges, check out my post on
My goals with these projects are the following:
- Learn/Improve new software development skills
- Document and share my findings and source code
- Teach others how to use these languages and frameworks
- Show progress during development
- Launch the project at the end
All of these goals may not be feasible for every project, but successful ones will check as many of these boxes as possible.
1. The Lawn Journal
I have really become interested in lawn domination by following Allyn Hane (The Lawn Care Nut). One of the important parts of a successful lawn care regiment that he recommends is tracking everything that you do in a Lawn Journal. While I can appreciate pen and paper, I’m a nerd. And as such, I think it would be a fun project to build a basic online Lawn Journal to help track what I am doing with my lawn and share this functionality with others that have the same interest.
Create a web based application that will allow users to track the following:
- Product Applications
- Progress Pictures
After tracking this information, basic reporting will be available to see all of these actions over time.
On the backend, I plan on using the Flask Microframework to help with the API development.
Finally, for the database, I will be using MongoDB.
