DG Chains

DG Chains is an application for disc golfers. It uses the PDGA, Dark Sky and Brewery DB APIs to provide registered users with access to a detailed course info. However, the primary focus is to allow users to record their round scores and view stats.


This project is a comprehensive showcase for my abilities as a web dev/designer. Except for the creation of the logo, (props to Nick Lindeman), I coded and designed every corner of this project. It is built on the Laravel Framework and implements APIs such as Dark Sky for weather, Brewery DB for finding local breweries and PDGA for course and event information.
