401Change started out as the idea of Zach Spencer. The project was accepted to Lansing Givecamp 2011 (3/25/11-3/27/11). Here a small team made a lot of initial progress to the project.
The site is live at http://401change.org.
The general premise is that people should be able to share and discuss the needs they see in the world and the actions they do to improve these and make the world a better place. Much work remains to fully realize the goals of the project and essentially it is in a very very early alpha.
To launch the project using shotgun:
- cd /Wherever/You/Copied/It/To
- gem install bundler
- gem install shotgun
- bundler install
The project leverages the following technologies:
- RSpec/Cucumber/Capybara for testing.
