Daily photographic exploration of the world’s greatest dog
Ruby on Rails, CSS, HTML
I developed Daily Rowan to meet a very specific need — to satisfy my dad's desire to see photos of my dog, Rowan. Prior to the site's launch, I would receive daily text messages asking for a new picture of Rowan. It was not necessarily a "problem," but the solution was obvious: create a site that would display a new photo of her everyday.
In its initial form, the site would randomly select a photo from a database to which I could push new images to. Since then, I have made several updates to include features such as ensuring images aren't repeated and displaying the last few days' photos in addition to the current one.

Since the site was also intended to be viewed by friends, I made sure to make the layout responsive. Over half of the page views on Daily Rowan come from mobile devices or tablets making responsive styling a necessity. Utilizing this design ensures that every visitor sees Rowan in the best way possible.
