Submit your site to 101 Best Websites

Saturday, August 2nd, 2008

We’re just about half way through our target and we have the submission process up and running! It’s still a bit manual and we haven’t figured out a way for the screenshots to be made without some intervention from us but we’re happy with the progress so far.

To submit a site you’ll need to register and login, then click on submit and follow the instructions.

Simple!

Getting started!

Saturday, August 2nd, 2008

And so we begin!

After a basic installation of Code Igniter (www.codeigniter.com) and a neat design, we’ve templated it up and are ready to start the application.

To begin with is the user registration process which we’ve decided should be based around a username rather than a password.  This way, when we’ve developed the site further, the user can have his/her own URL, for example: http://101bestwebsites.com/user/username, and they can have their own 101 best websites!

The differences that will stand us out from the crowd are:

  1. User registration, as above, each user can have his/her own area
  2. For each search, the 101st ranking site will get precidence!  This way, up and coming sites have a chance to increase their ranking.

We’ll be updating this blog as we go along, so please keep popping back and let us know what you think!

Build a web application in a weekend!

Friday, August 1st, 2008

Welcome to the first 101 Best Web Sites blog entry.

I’m working as part of a small team (2 people) attempting to build an entire web application in a weekend!  I’ll be building the backend systems and database, whilst the other developer will be dealing with the front end XHTML and design work.

My colleague and I run a small web design company (www.bestservedcold.com) and had an idea to build a modern web design showcase for some time now.  Being in the internet industry we spend a lot of time looking around CSS showcase sites for inspiration and new ideas, however, the sites in question seem to have stood still whilst other websites have surged forwards with their technology and up to date designs.

Our biggest issue in building this new site has been time!  When ever we try to dedicate any, we end up getting distracted with work for our clients and never quite get stuck in and the idea got shelved.

Solution?  Take a weekend out, turn the phones off, ignore email and dedicate 12 hours a day for both days building an MVC based web application!

We’ll be updating this blog during the weekend starting at 10am tomorrow, so have a look at our progress and view the main site here:
