Project Description: LZ Weather App

This basic weather application allows a user to retrieve their local weather conditions. The application integrates Open Weather Map’s free public API. The functionality is straightforward: the data retrieved from the API call for a given location is rendered to an HTML template, and the background of the body changes to reflect the reported conditions. This project allowed Lei to familiarize himself more with asynchronous calls via AJAX (jQuery), and using vanilla Javascript to handle some unit conversions (i.e. Unixtime to standard time, degrees to cardinal directions). Next steps for this project will be to integrate Google Maps API, allowing users to get conditions by clicking an arbitrary point on a map. Testing and handling of errors will also be a priority.
