Front End Description

The client needed a clean looking registration form along with a custom widget which would then display a “feed” of the applicant’s uploaded logos linked to the company web sites that could easily be dropped into any web site by adding a single line of javascript.

Back End Description

The form data needed to be validated and then stored in a Quickbase database. From there, I then created a custom XML report which I then parsed certain fields to then populate a custom drop in javascript widget. The widget then displayed a list of the ten most recent applicants’ logos linked to the company web sites.

Lessons Learned/Random Thoughts

This was a great project. I learned quite a bit about parsing XML and Quickbase.
