Coding is Awesome

A Creative Blog for Ningbit




BikeWithFriends is a Ruby on Rails web app that uses CitiBike data and shows your trip history as well as awards you badges for doing certain trips, like crossing a bridge or biking in Williamsburg (Hipster badge). I created the CSS and JQuery for the badges, utilized the Google Maps API for the Trip History page, used Bootstrap for additional elements, and built the login page. I also built much of the backend code that runs the application, grabs the trip data and calculates the logic to award the badges. My group presented this project at NY Tech Meetup at the beginning of this month as “Hack of the Month” to an audience of over 1000+ people.
