Demo Day Summary


Demo Day at our new space in Geekdom’s Event Centre was a success! Read on for a recap of Codeup students’ final projects.

My Garage Sale

Kevin Bongiovanni, Nicole DeBord, Felice Malaszowski
My Garage Sale offers a promotional platform for home garage sales. Hosts can create seamless sale pages and avid “pickers” can browse local listings quickly and conveniently.

The app was built using the Laravel framework, PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, jQuery, CSS3, HTML5, Twitter Bootstrap, and the Google Maps API. Version control was handled with GitHub. My Garage Sale also features tagging systems and image uploads.

InsureJoy takes the hassle out of buying life insurance. Users can browse life insurance policies without overwhelming and pushy insurance agents, using simple, clear, and transparent price comparisons.

This web app was built using Laravel, PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, jQuery, Twitter Bootstrap, and Dropzone.js. InsureJoy also features user logins, an admin/company dashboard, profile/user dashboard, 3rd party integration, and contact messaging. Version control was completed using Git and GitHub.

Rover Sleepover


Calvin Glover, Michael Gudowski, Stephanie Riera
Rover Sleepover creates a space for four-legged friends within the growing sharing economy. An “Airbnb for dogs,” the site connects dog owners with dog lovers who understand the stress of finding a safe place for a “Rover” to stay over when his/her owner goes out of town.

Rover Sleepover uses the Laravel framework, Google Maps API, PHP, MySQL, jQuery, HTML and CSS to create a simple user interface application for both users and hosts.

Serve Search


Jeff Brown, Paul Love, David Runnels
Serve Search was built with the idea that serving one’s community and making the world a better place should be easy. The app applies the approach of on-demand movies, one-click shopping, and the convenience of the “get it now” culture to volunteering with community organizations.

Serve Search was built using, Laravel, PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, jQuery, and Bootstrap. Development was done in the Vagrant environment and version control was completed with Git and GitHub. The site was designed mobile first and is fully responsive.
