Description
I share an office with two individuals from South Korea so we thought it would be fun during the 2012 olympics to track each countries medal count. We started off simply updating the numbers on our dry-erase board. I thought it would be more fun to develop a web tool that would update without me needing to edit the html page each time a new medal was earned. Using an API generated by the London 2012 Olympics website, I was able to parse a JSON data feed to dynamically load the medal counts in real time, automatically.
