It just keep growing and growing

I think, if ever there was a project that I have had more fun working on - then I must not be able to remember it. Since March of this year I have been devoting my spare time (ya right) to building a new web application for the CCGA. The main reason I started this was to catapult them Forward out of the dark ages of using paper reporting forms so that we could start getting some real stats and save LOADS of time.

About a month ago the module went into beta testing on their web site - but development continues at a fevered pace - in preparation for a February launch to all zones across BC.

In total itīs going to replace About 3 discrete systems and About 10 different paper forms. It will add loads of new stats and reports that they have never had before and open the whole thing up to the individual members to look at their own details - thatīs the fun part.

The screen-shot Iīve included is an example of one of the reports that the members will be able to see for themselves - in this case itīs Kelleiīs Most of the data is automatically tabulated from mission and training reports submitted by the coxswain for that trip - so the member doesnīt need to really do anything but look at the report.

Iīm not sure exactly how far Iīll be able to take this thing - and Iīm sure other organizations in a similar field will be able to use it as well - so Iīm keeping it as generic as I possibly can - any way I slice it though, it sure is fun.

Sorry if I keep droning on About this module - its just that itīs been my life for the last little while.

In other news, both Kellei and I get to go on an ARTE workshop to Bamfield (where RHIOT school is held) in January - this will be the final stab at completeing a formal coxswain standard for the CCGA. Having that will make my life in terms of being Training Officer MUCH easier - and the fact that Kellei will get to come along - is _really_ awesome!
