Completed my first rails app, wanted to say Thanks.

Hi, I would like to thank Alex for his awesome course. After completing yelpdemo & etsy app, I started to build my app and within 4 days I have completed it. Here is the link to the app - http://westatus.herokuapp.com. Pls check it and give me some guidelines. Also you can add this project to your students projects category if you want. And yes, this is just the starting. I am gonna make many different apps soon and add it to my portfolio. Once again, Thank you very much for everything. :)

Sumeet, this is awesome! I especially like some of the front-end styling elements you added (e.g. the shadow/border of input elements in the signup/signin forms, the homepage banner and background, the icons in the upper right corresponding to the different types of 'things'). One suggestion is to setup a default avatar for users who have not added one yet. Otherwise, you'll end up with a broken image file to the upper left of any 'things' they submit. Keep up the great work, Sumeet!

Sumeet/Alex, do you know how to create that background with the balloons and clouds? Is it just an image you set?

Jeremy, you'll be able to see how Sumeet set up the image by right-clicking the page and clicking 'Inspect Element' (in Google Chrome). In this case, it's done by adding a background image in CSS.

Hi, glad to know that you liked it and thank you very much for your comments. I will surely add default avatar for users.
