High School Reunion – Tracking Alumni

September 2nd, 2007 No comments

I originally created a website / alumni tracking tool for my 10 year high school reunion (see http://www.mayfield95.org/) about two years back.  My wife, who also graduated in 1995, saw the site – and figured, hey – why not re-use this for my 10 year reunion?  Thus… I ported the code over for her 10 year reunion (see http://www.goddard95.org/).

One of my brothers is getting ready to help put on his 20 year reunion, and asked if he might be able to take advantage of what I did for our reunion to track alumni, get tickets purchased, etc… and so I figured I’d take the opportunity to make my code more generalized so that the next time I’m asked to port it for another high school – it will *cross your fingers* hopefully require only copying some files, copying a database structure, and then modifying a single configuration file.

Anyhow – so taht is what I did… the site looks awfully similar – but the code behind it is much more general pupose now (see http://www.mayfield88.org/ for my brother’s site).  Yup… leave it to me to spend more time just make the behind the scenes stuff look better w/no change to the front end :)
