Project Overview

Fearless Fire Drills won Alabama Launchpad with their brilliant course helping small children be more comfortable and prepared during fire drills. Fearless Fire Drills needed a gamified course application to be used in correlation with their current physical fire drill course material. The application needed to be fun, inviting, and interactive so as to keep the attention of the kindergarten age children that will be using it. The course was to be made up of quizzes, animations, and instructional videos that led the child down the path of completing their safety test and receiving a certificate from Fearless the Fire Dog.

Goals

  • Architect a highly available application from the ground up
  • Implement a user interface that is simple, engaging, and gamified to keep the attention of small children
  • Use good programming practices and code quality to ensure easy future enhancements

Technology

  • Ruby on Rails
  • PostgreSQL
  • Sass
  • Coffeescript
  • Amazon Web Services
