Skill Shot is a pinball zine based in Seattle, publishing quarterly with a circulation of about 2500 printed issues. Skill Shot’s web presence includes a WordPress blog with multiple custom features:
- Map- and list-based displays of pinball machines on location in Seattle, loaded live from a custom REST API service written in Rails and hosted on Heroku, seamlessly integrated with WordPress
- Admin interface for updating pinball machine locations
- Location-based mobile apps loading from the REST API
In addition to the web and mobile features I also contribute to layout of the zine in InDesign and also author a pinball-themed crossword each issue.
