Midterm Pitching

Midterm Idea

February 26th, 2011 in Home Categories by 0 Comments

As midterm deadlines loom in the horizon, its time to put on my thinking cap.

For “Write Once, Access Anywhere”, I will be developing a resistor color code web app.

I’m under the assumption that if most people are given resistor, they will have to look up its value either using laptop or looking at a chart. If the resistor is commonly used by a user, he/she will know its value. If the user is given one they have not use commonly, they have to look it up, or run the risk of having their project short-circuit.

The web app will be divided into two section. In the first section, the user will be able to select in the resistor value and the web app will display the image of the corresponding resistor. For the second section, the user “constructs” the resistor and the web app will display the corresponding value.

Technical Overview

The web app will be developed using HTML, CSS, and Javascript (jQuery). The first section (text-t0-image) the user will only have two input choices, a text field and a submit button. Once submit is pressed, an algorithm will run and display the proper “image” of the resistor. I use quotation marks since the image itself will be a composite of a sole image and a great deal of css. The second section (image-to-text) will have four drop down selectors and a submit button. Again, once submit is pressed, an algorithm will run and display the proper resistor value in text form.
