Metro Vancouver Recycles

Date: Fall 2011

ShakingHand was brought in to upgrade and fix this troubled (at the time) project. We completely re-wrote the consumer-facing UI and the search algorithms. The result is a very user-friendly, fast and desktop-like Rich Internet Application providing comprehensive information about recycling anything in the Metro Vancouver area.

We employed the new Knockout.js javascript library (as well as good old jQuery) for the front end - Knockout provides a data binding engine much like Silverlight's, and allows the developer to employ the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern. Very clean, functional and maintainable.

The live site can be viewed here.

This site has now been provided to the cities of North York and Santa Monica for their own use.
