Build an unsolicited advice splurting web application
Think user generated data, pop-up modals, validations and the best-looking-fonts-ever, all wrapped in an awesome looking mobile first web application.
We developed a virtual online class giving you step-by-step guidance on coding over ten advanced features into one awesome web application called Splurty.
Write some code, learn something new and build an awesome unsolicited advice generator web app.
Plus, you'll be able to customize your web application to your interests. Here's a few examples to get you thinking:
• You know you're an urban planner when...
• Startup Advice that doesn't suck...
• Or even just a place for people to vent (think of the viral site fmylife.com) - or you could go the other way and let people share things that make them happy...
Still on the fence? Here's a quick sneak peak at our syllabus.
