This is my very first web development project, so any comments would be appreciated.
Some lessons learned:
•There's lots of interesting open datasets out there. This app uses The College Scorecard
•JustGoscha's almighty-autocomplete is the easiest autocomplete I ever used
•Using Angular to make an SPA is a lot more fun and easier than using JQuery for AJAX
•Anyone can make their page more exciting with CSS animations
•MongoDB really is faster.. I optimized my query to only return the names of the universities to create an array to populate the auto-complete, and it works about as quickly as I could imagine
•Using Mongorestore and Mongodump with MongoLabs made uploading all my data a breeze
