Howdy Runners! I’m still heavily under way developing the application, the two weeks I’ve logged about 25 hours worth of development time. Building applications is fun, AND a ton of work!
I spent the last few weeks working on:
-the logging routes
-calculating points for races.
-fetch the list of races
-store a Spahtens completed races
-UI design and clean up
-Application build and deployment to Heroku
-testing on actual smart phones
Currently I’m about 90% complete with the beta version and hopefully we will be up and running by this weekend!!
This week I’m focused on a few things:
1.) adding a race completed to a runner’s profile
2.) calculating points based on laps ran for multilap races
3.) calculating a total runner’s points
4.) building in an update feature in case runners make a mistake logging laps and need to fix it
5.) opening the address link in google maps so you can get navigation to the race
I do have the application deployed online and you can currently navigate to it, if you’d like to join a small team of testers, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to have five or so people to routinely jump in and test some features.
That’s all for now!!
Here are a couple of screen grabs:
