Idea and conception

While playing chess all night long in our chess club more on a friendly basis, the idea came up to keep track of the played games and results to have a more detailed overlook of the actual progress of each player and compare the skills and strength against each other. Since I'm a programmer by nature, the option to create a mobile web app was the only real choice in compare to keep track of the games on a piece of paper.


"Night shift chess" is a web app mainly intend for reporting chess game results for the Night shift chess club Zuerich of which I'm a member of and also includes many of my good friends and and good colleagues. The basis of the app is a responsive web site developed with PHP, Javascript and MySQL. For simplification I also used the Bootstrap framework as well as JQuery and CanvasJS for the reports and charts. For using the web app on mobile devices like Android phones / tablets as well as iPhones and iPads I also created a wrapper app with Cordova which is available in the Google Play Store (Apple App store is coming soon).
