Over the summer of 2010, a friend and I decided to dabble in web programming (since we had time available). Specifically, we wanted to create a file storage website similar to Dropbox, although neither of us new of its existence at the time. Although we never actually finished the project, it was really useful in helping me learn web programming (something I’ve wanted to learn for a while). I even coded up a preliminary OS-like UI for file explorers.
You can try the website here: ExtDrive
Please note that many of the icons and images used in the website are not original (they came from other sources, such as Azenis Icons). I had no intention of using them in a final product (were it to be completed); they were merely examples of what the site could look like. And yes, there is still a long way to go, and it will probably never be completed, but it was definitely a lot of fun to build.
