Coding in the wild… a test
For my first project, I plan to design a site that will do the following:
NYC Recycling Schedules and Exceptions
- user enters address
- site reports back the recycling schedule for that address on the day in question
- options include:
- regular scheduled delivery, in which case icons will appear showing the items to be put out for recycling.
- no delivery scheduled
- delivery exception, which might then trigger email to signed up users
This idea came to me as our building was handed yet another sanitation fine, seemingly at random by the Department of Sanitation. Each fine is $ 100, and it’s starting to add up. I’m pretty good on the regularly-scheduled pick-ups but the exceptions, due to holiday schedules or inclement weather cause problems because then the rubbish is just left to pile up. This in itself usually doesn’t result in a fine, but it does mean the rubbish gets ripped open, causing it to spill on the street, and that does result in a fine. No more! No more! It’s quite cool that this is going to happen, I can tick something off my project list, as referenced in this earlier post.
