JQuery Coding - Project

We've added an Event List to the open source “Full Calendar” project. The calendar uses client-side javascript, so you won’t have to install a local database or server-side code to lend your programming skills.

(1.) Assit in setting up GitHub repository. (Optionally use Cloud 9 with GitHub)
(2.) Activate Full Calendar's “weekly” and “daily” tabs using the open source project's existing capabilities.
(3.) Clicking the “calendar” tab currently re-queries the database. Avoid reloading the calendar feed when moving between the tabs.
