Did you know that there was such a thing as corporate chaplains? Before I took this job, I didn’t. For this project, I teamed up with The Eastco Group* to do something I’d honestly never even considered before: build a WordPress site and turn it into a phone app. And then also a database app.
This is one of those projects that’s full of really awesome stuff that you just can’t see. On the face of it, it’s a little reference tool that displays the contact information of assigned chaplains by code number, and it remembers your code for the next time you need to reference it. This site also automatically updates it’s listings from a remote database and writes it’s own reports. It also features a heavily-modified backend so that a user can make updates by hand and context-appropriate database information and it’s just one of those sites where just about everything got touched. The front end is kind of ridiculously simple, but to make that go required crazy complex stuff.
*: They got the client, came up with the crazy idea, implemented the design, and ported the whole thing to mobile. Basically they got to do all the sexy stuff and I got to write code.
