Known Issues

  1. Countries featured are incomplete or inaccurate. At some point these should be standardized to countries recognized by the UN or something like that. In the intrest of saving some time, I took the default world map from the J Vector Map library.
  2. It would be nice to provide additional learning resources for each country, even if they are just links.
  3. The Guardfile setup needs work.
  4. Javascript tests need major work.
