The Ottawa Rinks website features 100% custom programming using PHP web application framework. We also re-thought the database schema to enable easy modular programming that is easy to understand and write.
The website interface is built with Bootstrap, mobile first front-end framework with some neat homepage modifications to bring a dynamic look and feel to the website based on daytime or nighttime visits.
In the 2014 – 2015 season, new features included the ability to post condition updates to the site by sending a text message to a local phone number and a new street team sign up and downloads area.
