Visit Payraise Calculator
You always know when I disappear for a couple days – it means that I’m taking in plenty of caffeine and programming my brains out. One of the first projects I ever had was programming an employee performance database in Microsoft Access 2.0! A feature that I added to it (since our HR department required all of the values be filled in) was a pay increase calculator. I programmed it as a form in the database and the results printed out in a report.
I built this site from scratch utilizing Dreamweaver (I’m a ol’ school notepad guy… but I decided to give it a shot). I did the graphics in Illustrator. I utilized CSS for the front-end 100%, and even have a Print CSS version (go ahead and print the results out and you’ll see). The front end was inspired by 37Signals… nice and simple, but a little elegant. I still have the results displaying in a table – but that’s on purpose because I want people to be able to copy and paste the results in Excel or any other pogram. There’s a lot of neat little quirks about the application. I hope you like it!
Be sure to report any bugs to me! Next step is integrating a Job Search engine utilizing Indeed for the back-end. Maybe next weekend!
