Google Developer Day: The website using our tech

Google, Tech Add comments

I have been very much heads down for Google Developer Day.

We finally got to launch the website, which uses:

  • Google Maps API: Of course
  • Google AJAX Feed API: Showing blog entries on the location home page, and in a lightbox on the main page
  • Google Picasa API: Showing photos on the location pages
  • Google Spreadsheet Data API: We are using this as a pseudo database that people at the various locations use to control their site

There are fun hacks galore, such as using cron to update a google spreadsheet with the current time in various locations, and then accessing that spreadsheet from JavaScript to get the data.

The best part though, is the throbbing:

I want to say thanks to my partner in crime on this. Pamela Fox. She may be scared of PacMan, but she can sure hack JS :)
