I put the Genesis Project aside first and focus what entity should hold the project and future projects for that matter. I created RATLABS, this will be a web design organization that will be headed, of course, by me.
Why create RATLABS? I believe that your biological name is the greatest brand you will ever have, but my name is a bit mouthful so I created an acronym of it. I will not give it away it here, for mysterious effect purposes, but somewhere in the brand that has my name on it go figure. So why? I just need an entity to hold my projects so there is another layer of ambiguity.
I set aside the project for a few weeks, and I already charged just a week of work on my logs. From March when I started the Genesis Project I worked on research and some sample codes for preparation of the project. I put effort on the UI of the project but there are still a lot to do and some few tweeks I need to put on the canvass. There are a lot of going on basically with the project and I think this is a good venue to put it all in the new brand.
Hello WebDevs, it’s been a while that I started this project and I’ve been on and off of the project for the last two weeks. I got off in a very bad momentum but I am slowly doing the project as planned. I alread started coding and I am creating the administration panel template for the project. The screens will be patterned to the template and the body will be the only one changing from time to time or when the user switch pages.
I wanted to have a screenshot of the work so far but it seems there is nothing much to show, but I will share on this blog soon. So far the pages that were created were the template and some forms or will be the entry points of the date needed on the web application.
Exciting times! Probably June will be the best month to launch the initial version. This is for educational purposes for those starting off with PHP. Then we will improve the system as we go along and start another system with different approach, probably with a framework or we start on the bootstrap.
If you are starting off in PHP, maybe you put your views or requests on the comment section.
So it started, the design phase is now on. I started already for the teacher panel and something with the administration panel. It is still a bit bare, I am still putting the contents that make sense. My design skills are still in the hibernation mode so, the detail is a bit off I am hoping to create the body out of it, the whole panel is still out of sync.
As it was defined previously, it will be as simple as a school project. But of course the synchronicity of the contents should be as tight as a drum. It should work as one and look as one. Like any other system the contents should be organized as the data could come from any direction and it is always subject for corrections.
The teacher’s access will have basic panels, the dashboard will have a filter according to the level he/she is handling. It will have so called ‘cards’, that will be grouped by level. The cards will have the number of students on that level and section if there are several. It will also contain the teacher’s schedule id and the status of the grades. The status should be released in every quarter. On that note, there should be no corrections done or it will be requested to admin that will have adjustments on the grades.
Watch out for my next post so I can write about the admin panel.
