Make Our Book

Emma Barnes @has_many_books

"I have written makeourbook.com to bring publishing to the classroom. I'm particularly pleased with the use of the table of contents for navigation: it is a chance to improve my JavaScript which is not my strength. I am using React Beautiful DND. This summer I'm working on the Purchase workflow so orders are more automated, and on more layout options for schools." Screenshot of the navigation page and a child's piece on makeourbook.com

"For Side Project Summer 2019, I tried to get to grips with making API calls in Ruby. I built a site that interacts with the Consonance Product API to fetch metadata for books published by the University of London Press, where I work. I learned plenty of useful stuff about APIs along the way, a lot of which has now become relevant to my role at the Press. Read more about how it works here. Currently in the process of scoping out my project for Side Project Summer 2020!" Screenshot of the University of London Press Side Project Summer homepage
