Current and Recent Undergrad Projects

The goal of this project is to create, from the ground up, a functioning two tier website.  It will consist of a dynamic user interface using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), coupled with a MySQL database using PHP scripting.  The end result will be an interactive site that has dynamic content based on user input through a simple content management system.  The main focus will be user database interactions.  The user will log in to the system, and be able to upload their own content to the site, which will be searchable by any user of the page.  The specific purpose of the web site will be to provide users with information on where to find live entertainment locally.  There will be several types of users: venue, entertainer, and viewer.  A venue user will be just that – a café, theater, etc. who will log in to list the upcoming events at their venue.  For instance, Madison Square Garden could be a venue.  The MSG user would log in to the system, and post information about all of the events happening at the Garden in the next month.  These events would be stored in the site's mySQL database via text input entered on the user's computer, and it would then become available for all users to see.   An entertainer-type user is very similar to a venue user. They will also enter information about upcoming performances, which will not necessarily all be at the same venue.   The system is simple, but the backend will be complex.  Content management will be simple text entry, but it will allow for the user to make any sort of formatting they'd like for their content.  Because of the way it will be set up, this website will be self-perpetuating.  As long as venues and entertainers are uploading events, users will have content to view.

The goal of this project was to create a computer application modeled off a psychology test for young children with hearing disabilities that was traditionally given using paper and pencil. The majority of the work focused on modeling the application around the constraints of the traditional test, which had to be shown to the members of the psychology department in order to make sure that the application was heading in the right direction.  The final application will be used as a test for children in the University of Connecticut’s psychology department.
