Ninestiles School in Birmingham have been beta testing our new Development Environment (yes, you’ll soon be able to extend Frog in any way you want, by creating your own code and database systems within Frog itself, and even pushing your hard work up on to the Frog Exchange for others to share the benefit of)
Ben Hall and Mo Karim from Ninestiles have created a few widgets of their own. I thought I’d share them with you ;0)
First off is a Parent Booking System for Consultation Evenings:
They’ve created their own LIVE connection to their cashless catering system:
They’ve also created a Live College Competition Graph:
and the Head of the College can add an Event at any time through a simple database interface:
On the assessment side, they’ve created their own flash based connection to a Frog database for a Progress Graph:
And finally, they’ve extended the new social networking system to include Mentoring data in the Student Profile:
Personally, I’m really excited about this. Many of the items above are things that our customers are already asking us for, and the fact that Ninestiles have built these themselves, and at a later date would be able to share these, if they so chose, really starts to make the point of where Frog is going as a platform, and as a business. When we release this capability out into the “wild”, we’ll also be providing source code for many widgets to give you folks a head start.
Ben, Mo – well done fellas, fantastic!!
