Update on my the web application built around the data available from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

My Vet­er­ans Resource web app is final­ly ready to announce its first live ver­sion! Okay, you’re prob­a­bly not as hap­py about it as I am, but this has been one of the longest term projects I have ever worked on and I am thrilled that it has come as far as it has.

For a live demo of the infor­ma­tion and fea­tures, so far, go here. To see the code in all of its jum­bled glo­ry (I haven’t fin­ished adding the com­ments and what have you), go here. No, I am not wor­ried about any­one “steal­ing my code”, I licensed it under the MIT License, say­ing:

THE SOFTWARE IS PROVIDEDAS IS”, WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY,

AUTHORS OR COPYRIGHT HOLDERS BE LIABLE FOR ANY CLAIM, DAMAGES OR OTHER
LIABILITY, WHETHER IN AN ACTION OF CONTRACT, TORT OR OTHERWISE, ARISING FROM,
OUT OF OR IN CONNECTION WITH THE SOFTWARE OR THE USE OR OTHER DEALINGS IN
THE SOFTWARE.

So, essen­tial­ly, I make no war­ranties if you use the code for your own nefar­i­ous schemes. How­ev­er, I also can­not tell you not to use my code for the afore­men­tioned nefar­i­ous schemes. Not that you could real­ly do much dam­age with what lit­tle code I’ve brewed up for this at any rate. My only hope is that some vets will have less of a strug­gle get­ting the help they deserve than I did when I was first dis­charged. No one should have to beat them­selves up just to get the care they signed years of their live away for.

Okay, enough preach­ing, just enjoy the code and the demo.
