Pet Shop

Pet Shop

This site used JavaScript, JQuery, and Bootstrap. My goal is to rebuild this site in the future but with AngularJS instead of JQuery…

Furthermore this Pet Shop site will allow me to compare and contrast the JQuery way with the AngularJS way. I think having this goal will make learning AngularJS even more interesting, tangible, and compelling.

Here are some links that helped me with this site:

Responsive Images
Javascript innerHTML images
Get Spinner UI value on change
Get value attribute from jQueryUI Spinner

 

404 Page

404 Page

This used Bootstrap and was based on this UX advice. This site demonstrated the importance of giving the user a clear path when he or she is lost.

I originally wanted to build something amusing like Github’s 404 page

404

or something incredible like these 40(4) pages. But I learned that a 404 page that appears similar to the rest of the site is less disconcerting for the lost user. Also providing the user the option to contact you with feedback as well as a way to return to the Home page creates a better experience. Overall I learned that sometimes less is more when building a web page.
