I’m pleased to announce the launch of a micro-site aimed at aggregating the multitude of tech events centered in and around Melbourne, Australia. It’s far from ready but with the sheer number of events in the next few days/weeks I thought it was important I get it out the door.
It’s buzz word compliant!
It’s responsive. It’s got some subtle parallax. It passes JS Hint.
It’s boilerplated, bootstrapped, heroku-hosted, JSON driven, jQuery drawn wizardry.
But, the err, source code has seen better days. Hopefully I can clean that up in the next few days.
It’s been a pleasure working with @sesh on this. I basically provide him with a static JSON file, he uses that as a DTO for his back end stuff and, once we flick a magic switch, all the data becomes live. He flat out gets what you’re on about so most of the work can be organised in a 140 character twitter DM.
In terms of future functionality, we plan on cleaning up the UI a bit, adding more events and the ability to change state/location, with the potential for other countries too.
