Better Alamance Volunteers Database

For my final capstone project, I worked with a local client, The Better Alamance Project, to create and display a searchable database of volunteer opportunities available to the public in Alamance County.

In the beginning of the project, I designed lo-fi and hi-fi mockups using Adobe Illustrator and InVision App. I also spent the first portion of the capstone process learning the basics of MySQL and database management.

I created the database using MySQL and PHPmyAdmin. The front-end website is designed using PHP and utilizes AJAX to perform the pagination function. I hand coded the front-end website without the use of frameworks. The website is responsive at five breakpoints for desktop screens, iPad, Tablet, large smartphones, and small smartphones.

The website was delivered to the client in May 2015.
