    This MEAN stack app calculates what percentile your salary falls into among other stu


    This is my very first web development project, so any comments would be appreciated.

    https://alumnisalaryranking.herokuapp.com

    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

    It may be useful for someone. Maybe you could do a little work on UI, it looks horrible.

    it is a perfectly good proof of concept as far as the algorithm is concerned. Quick and responsive.

    The database is obviously limited to USA colleges so expanding the database to other countries might be fun too.
