Application: a registration system for Backr.net
A single page sign up app, allowing users to choose a career path and pass this info on to Backr to set up mentoring. Now replaced with the live Backr.net site, see a demo version of the site here.
This site was built to enhnance an standard sign up form and to give a flavour of the final site, which allows young people to connect with experienced professionals for mentoring.
Users could fill in their desired career path, then be given a list of related careers displayed as a network. As these related careers were updatable and changed per use, the solution was to dynamically build the network using underscore.js to draw the network elements using a mixture of SVG (rendered with pablo and CSS generated content).
- CSS techniques to draw generated content (squares, circles, triangles)
- Data import using YQL
- Parsing large data structures using underscore.js
- Dynamic SVG rendering
