Written in ColdFusion in 2007 for the National Institute of Standards and Technology, this database-heavy application is the kind of thing that JavaScript frameworks like Backbone and AngularJS do so well now (2014), but then it involved lots of http requests and page reloading.

The database work was done by Cam Marshall of ArielMIS, who I often work with. My part of that was some simple queries and parsing the results. In 2014 we ported the application to PHP and modernized the front-end, using Backbone.JS, to make it snappier.
