about the project
About the project
  • It was committed by Professor Jens Meierhenrich from the Harvard’s Department of Government. It started around June 2009 and completed a year later.

rwanda s genocide and memorials
Rwanda’s genocide and memorials
  • In 100 days at least 800,000 people were killed (20% of the country's total population).
  • Hutu extremists killed mostly Tusti.
  • Officially there are few memorials all over Rwanda, unofficially there are hundreds of them.
project main challenging
Project main challenging:
  • Choosing the right graphics to visualize such painful dataset.
  • Coordinate CGA prospective and Professor’s expectation.
  • Since CGA did not have any real expert in web developing, the project turned out to be a demanding web project, even if the final product ended up to be a static website that use html code and basic javascript.
technology used
Technology used:
  • Jquery (home page / images carousel)

conclusion
Conclusion:
  • Excellent application to integrate text and images into a neat website.
  • Probably not the right technical implementation. HTML is not flexible enough, the site is easly adaptable to other project.
  • With more knowledge and better planning, we could used technology like xml-xslt or database like mysql.
