Success Story – stadiumscene.com

D.J. Fluck sent in this testimonial about the amazing website he has created. The site he has built is a great example of what can be achieved building on top of the fundamentals of The Complete Web Developer Course. The web site doesn’t just provide a service for thousands of sports fans but has started to generate some income too! Well done for a great job D.J.!

My name is D.J. Fluck and my partner Kate Thompson and I would like to thank you for your excellent Web Development course on Udemy.com.  In late 2015 when we started building www.stadiumscene.com, we had a very basic understanding of only HTML and CSS, but thanks to your course, we built a full PHP site, using Bootstrap, JavaScript, Ajax, a MYSQL database for our login system, and secured our site with an SSL certificate.

The concept of stadiumscene.com is to help connect sports fans in the US and Canada (we’ll be expanding to Europe in the next year or so) with their travel plans to make going to the big game more than just the game, but a full experience.  We provide the user with travel tips to get to the stadium (airfare, public transit, ride sharing), find directions and parking, and most importantly, our hand-picked bar and restaurant choices in the stadium area.  We have a page for each bar and restaurant in our database where users can provide their own reviews and read about the place.

We’ve reviewed 166 stadiums/auto racing tracks and 732 bars and restaurants throughout the United States and Canada and over the last two months where we’ve been advertising on social media, we’ve exceeded 35,000 page views per month.  With our ad campaigns and affiliate marketing programs with Amazon, Fanatics.com, ParkWhiz.com, and Booking.com, we’ve finally started to make a little bit of money with our project and we owe our success to you and your program.

I’m in the process of taking your iOS 10 course right now and our next step is to move into the mobile application world, but I don’t anticipate that happening until sometime in 2018.  I filled out your survey the other day and noted that I’d love to see a short tutorial on sqlite in the iOS 11 course.  I can’t wait to check that out.

Also, feel free to check us out on social media too on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.  We’ve started hosting a podcast with our other partner and just completed our 8th episode tonight.

Thanks again,

D.J.
