Pong Position is in Production!

October 22nd, 2007 · No Comments · Code, Concept, Digital Process

Pong Position, the ping-pong ranking system “mini-app” is going to be the first project on jacobmake!

I’ve been very happy with the response and comments so far. Please keep them coming and don’t forget to grab an RSS feed. While this project is in development I will be commenting further on the potential projects and hopefully posting some new ones.

I’ve purchased a domain pongposition.com and will be developing there.

To recap the project, I’m creating a web application that will track scores and rank players for the ping-pong league at my work. I’ll be using PHP, SQL to manage the data (pushing my skills), and I’ll build a nice little ajax interface for it (much more at home).

Visually and technically, the app will be broken up into 3 sections for a simple phase 1.

  • Leaderboard – this will rank the players, I may borrow some of the algorithm my buddy the iceman came up with.
  • Game Entry – this section will be the form where you enter game data, win, loss, skunk, etc.
  • Recent Activity – I’m going to time-stamp and display the results of the most recent games.

Folks at work, if your reading this and thinking, “What the hell, I thought we were developing this together!”, I’m really just doing this to test my dev skills, maybe we can modularly break it down and use it for the collaborative effort, but I’m doing this mainly as a test for myself.

Well, that’s it, I’m off to it! Check back for progress.
