Dancing Burrito

This project was created as a part of the Centriq Class of December 2015 group project. It is designed to help put major purchasing decision in perspective by converting the purchase price of any item into a total number of standard Chipotle burritos that could be purchased for the same amount.

No burritos were harmed in the making of this program. However, the Centriq Class of 2015 would like to offer its sincere thanks to all of the good people who made the burritos that powered our late-night programming. We also like TaB and Mountain Dew.

Custom Tech Support Ticket Tracker

The purpose of this portfolio website is to demonstrate a working Ticket Support Tracker for tech support with an integrated employee database, such as would be used on a corporation intranet.

The Star Trek theme was selected for this site to add interest and a unifying theme. The styling, theme, and colors can be easily modified to conform to existing design while retaining the functionality of the site.

This website also incorporates code to convert standard dates to a Star Trek stardate. The current stardate can be seen at the bottom right of every page, and all views that show a date show it in terms of the stardate it was set. Dates are still entered according to the Gregorian calendar for simplicity.
