educational web application depicting the accomplishments of CERN

Warning message

You must login to view this form.

We will create a self-contained web app rendering and displaying a timeline containing every accomplishment CERN has made since its inception.

In three days we will create a prototype, containing as much data as we have time for. This prototype demontrates the idea and gives an indication how maintainable and extendable we have made it.

There are a couple of ways we can make this

  • completely client-side: removing the need for a backend altogether.
    this requires a very good web app framework, I'm thinking of the Polymer library
  • making a docker image:
    this gives us full flexibility over our technology stack
    for example we can have a database in the backend (couchdb + pouchdb) so people can contribute.

Data Visualization
Skills Being Sought: 
  • we need people with an intimate knowledge of CERN's activities for the past 60+ years
  • we need designers to make this thing beautiful
  • we need people with web application coding knowledge, this will probably be limited to just Polymer and maybe Pouchdb.
Weekend Goals: 

In three days we will create a prototype, containing as much data as we have time for. This prototype demontrates the idea and gives an indication how maintainable and extendable we have made it.

Prerequisites: 
A lot of these technologies are new, you are not required to have experience with all of them. Previous experience with web app development is a plus. People with knowledge of CERN's accomplishments or with knowledge of resources where to find this is welcome.
