Yesterday was Launch Academy’s first ever Ship it! Saturday, a day-long hackathon with the goal of creating something of value and launching it. Current and past launchers as well as members of the Ruby community in Boston were in attendance. It was an excellent way to use the skills I’m learning and switching gears for a day to refresh the mind.

I wanted to try my hand at creating a novel interaction suited for mobile devices using technologies that I’ve been learning. The system I created consists of animated tabs revealing pages of information that is suitable for a basic profile page or something similar. I used CSS3 animations combined with jQuery to achieve the effects. The site is hosted on GitHub Pages and anyone is welcome to fork it as well as contribute. Check out Tabtastic and let me know what you think.
