When I came back from Germany, I realized there were no webpages exclusively dedicated to flat-sharing. People who needed to find a room or who were looking for new room-mates had to use the regular real-state websites. This websites give you a lot of options to specify and search what are you renting and where will you live, but for most of the wannabe flatmates, the big question is with whom?
I started this project mostly to teach myself php. The main idea was to build a website from scratch, trying to keep it extremely lightweight and easy to maintain. I experimented a lot with jQuery and JSON, using resource files to make it multilingual. I recognize I didn’t care much about design and I didn’t finish many of the “big” ideas I had.
I left this project in standby when I started my design and edition studies but he whole concept is still in my mind and in my notebook’s sketches, just waiting to get a real name and a cool design.
