Abstract

With my new hiring for the STATPack I was immediately given a project to work on. This project being the TimeMatch website for mentees and mentors to set up times to meet up and make a way for the head of the program to see if the mentors/mentees were working together and meeting up like they should. The main challenge of the project was learning a new programming language called PHP. It is a server-side scripting language used in many webpages such as Facebook. The first thing I did was redesign it to make it more mobile friendly, dynamically resizing and such. This way whatever the user is accessing the website with the interface will look the same. After that I proceeded to clean up most of the database interaction code, bringing it up to date with a newer plugin was my main priority. I added functionality by making it easy to have reports generated for anyone who had the right to request them. The reports include the contact information for the mentee, the last few meetings they were in, and whether those meetings were successful or not. The system will be put into full use this semester by youth under the organization of Ann Hobbes, director of the Juvenile Justice Institute under the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice.
