The Mount Vernon Urbanites is a social organization for young professionals who live or work in the neighborhoods of Mount Vernon & Midtown-Belvedere in Baltimore, Maryland
I volunteered to design and develop a web site for the organization shortly after its formation. Working with a committee of members we discussed the intended purpose that the website would serve, decided on sections and content, and then picked a final design that I developed.
This project was my introduction to Twitter Bootstrap - an excellent front-end framework that allows for quickly developed strong code. Additionally it provides built in support for responsive design - the process of creating one design that changes depending on the device's screen size that it is accessed through. The intention of this is to create a consistent layout throughout the different devices with as little effort as possible. Bootstrap fills this need excellently!
The code base for MVU is available on my GitHub account at https://github.com/cjmaynar/mv-urbanites
