Coachella iPhone App / Cartifact Map Portal

For the past few months I've been spending all my evenings and weekends working on two big projects: the Coachella iPhone App and the Cartifact Map Portal. I am really happy with the results and ecstatic that I am not currently working 14 hour days and weekends!

I've been doing web programming work for Coachella and Goldenvoice since 2005 when I wrote the Coachooser, a online scheduler where concertgoers could choose who they want to see. As soon as the time-slots were announced the Coachooser then allowed the user to print out their schedule for the event. I have programmed the Coachoooser each year since then.

This year I pitched Goldenvoice on an iPhone application for the festival. They finally gave me the green light a bit over a month ago. Considering that it was my first iPhone application I think it came out really well. The Coachella iPhone App has been up on the iTunes store for about a week and has been downloaded thousands of times. It was hard work hammering out this application in a month, but the response was worth it.

Another project I recently finished is an interactive map portal for a really cool mapping company called Cartifact. This project is the most advanced javascript application I have written. It does some really cool things, especially the lens tool which let's you see a different map over the top of the map you're viewing.

I enjoyed the hard work, but I'm looking forward to enjoying my evenings and weekends again!
