Trying salmon again

    I'm building an app for my mom to help with her work and using it as an excuse to learn Python, backbone.js and a few other technologies (so there's relatively little visual design work).

    I'm also using it as an excuse to revisit salmon after my college days. I think it's working better this time.

    @Justin Edmund Why Python and not Ruby?

    @Arsenije: Keeping my bases covered. Old Foundation is PHP, New Foundation is in Ruby, and this is Python. I figure I should be familiar, if not fluent, with all three.

    @Jackson: Its a tool for people recruiting for market research studies to keep track of people and what studies they're supposed to attend.

    It does a several more nifty things like calculate how much the recruiter is owed (since you're paid per-person), keep track of different research venues, and eventually will allow potential screens to apply to the database to be placed in a study.

    My mom has 1000+ people in her database and is managing it mostly manually, and I grew up around it so I know the space well enough to exponentially decrease the amount of time spent doing work, and make keeping track of 2000 or 3000 people statistically just as much work as 1000 (There's still an aspect of calling people on the phone and talking to them, so I can't scale that, but at least the tracking and sourcing headaches can be solved)

    Looks look—the salmon isn't working in the nav, though; look at those edges!
