Ting.it is a site that lets users create short movies or stop motion animations with their webcams. It was created to enable more emotional connection over social media, as a way of bridging the gap when using a service like Twitter.

The site was built as a Django app, and had a fairly large JavaScript frontend, especially for the ‘capture’ page. I was the sole developer on the site, and worked very closely with designers Ben Pawle and Ken Smeed.

After launching the site our focus on the project turned to Tingbot, which was originally conceved as a device for viewing Tings!
