Fall 2013

Devocracy helps students find and fund scholarships. It gives anyone the freedom to contribute to a student or cause, and students the opportunity to sell themselves and their dreams.

Crowdfunding scholarships with Devocracy is an alternative to burdensome student loans. Funders support students with vision, creativity and passion who reach out for financial aid prior to investing in education.

Interactive Graphics

Used modern web browser technology to build an interactive map as shown in the video, as well as a statistics page with dynamic data-driven charts which render beautifully on your phone or tablet.

Payment Processing

This app will accept major credit cards to fund scholarships. To ensure a secure and functional page, this feature was added by forking and modifying an exiting project Crowdtilt on Github.

Technology

FrontEnd => { HTML5, CSS3, SVG, jQuery, javascript, data visualization with d3.js }

Dynamic, Real-time Updates

Adding or removing data points is easy as the chart will automatically adjust the size, positioning and scale of the image.

Visualizations can be formed into dashboards for reporting, analyics and educational tools.

Why Build a Web App?

"Nothing is too small for your fullest attention to the finest detail."

A mission to solve every problem on Earth is unattainable and silly unless you approach each problem, feature, or moment equally.

My observations in various disciplines, from tech, medicine or economics, show common patterns of success and failure. Three keys to success:

Adapt

Like a frog that won't jump out of a boiling pot, the people and businesses that neglect a changing landscape are in deep trouble. Ideas and products once sold in stores or on TV are now purchased with tablets. Digitize your marketing immediately.

Plan

There has never been a tool or appliance with greater adoption rate than mobile computers! Without a customized web app delivering information to tablets and smartphones you're lost at sea.

Act

Step out from the cold lonely waters of ink and paper marketing and get digital. Contact me now and I will provide a plan to boost your online presence accompanied with data on how this will improve your bottom line.
