Sedal Rizos

A curly-hair competition for a $250 shopping spree
Another quick campaign application to generate FanPage likes. In order to compete, users were required to like Sedal's FanPage, complete registration, and upload videos, images, or a tip on maintaining their curly hair (ideally using Sedal products;). Voting was validated by IP, user agent, and session, while video uploads were POST'd directly to a public YouTube channel using their PHP SDK. The project extended ID's fork of the Slim PHP Framework. I personally found more hurdles than helpers in the tightly namespaced codebase and it's odd use of closures for routing/controllers.

The Means

A vision from Biko Eisen-Martin for his students at Berkeley High School to create a tool for teachers and students to collaborate and compete in the writing process. Modeled after a traditional newsroom, students and teachers would be able to develop assignments, work on multiple versions of a story, share ideas within the class, and more. We built a prototype site that supported a semester of great essays still worth reading, but the project lost momentum as we both moved cities.

This project's greatest potential was in a version-controller for teachers to review, grade and provide feedback on student's essays, while peer reviews drove friendly competition between writer and school rankings.

If you work in Education or feel something like this could help your classroom or school district, please email me. I'd love bring it back to life in our spare time.

UI Tools include tinyMCE text editor, advance sourcing maps, and multi-category search options
