Oct 2012

Technologies:
PHP, JavaScript, WordPress

Description:
The initial build of this site was done by me while working at Domo.

I spent a lot of time creating custom post types and utilizing the Advanced Custom Fields plugin to give the administrators complete control over all the components of the site.

One feature that I enjoyed coding, would check popular social sites and displayed the number of times it was shared across all these platforms. This allowed users to gauge the popularity of an article.

Technologies:
PHP, JavaScript, WordPress

Description:
When I first came to Domo and inherited this project it took about 20s to load a page. My first assignment was to figure out why.

Over the course of two weeks, I worked on limiting requests, caching everything I could, rewrote and optimized sql queries, and implemented every performance trick in the book. In the end, I was able to get it to consistently load within 1s (post cache of course)!

Telemundo: Club de Noveleras

Jan 2011

Agency: Riser

Technologies:
SCSS, JavaScript, Bunchball

Description:
This was the last project I worked on during my time at Riser. We were tasked with the front-end development and integration of Bunchball's gamification technology. The front-end piece needed to be very flexible. To accomplish that I implemented a lot of the lessons I learned about OOCSS in the book SMACSS. The gamification element of the site allowed registered users to accumulate points by interacting with website elements (videos, photos, reading, polls, quizzes etc.). Users may then redeem their points for free things.

Ugly Betty

Sept 2010

Agency: Riser

Technologies:
HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Nanoc

Description:
I really liked the look of this site. It was done for ABC Domestic Television. The site didn't allow for any server side languages such as PHP so we built it using a useful Ruby gem called "Nanoc" that allowed us to build it dynamically and then compile the final project statically.

I helped out on the front end and also with the JavaScript that handles the channel locator.

People of Walmart

Apr 2010

Agency: Riser

Technologies:
PHP, CSS, JavaScript, Wordpress

Description:
For this project I was in charge of the front end build and WordPress integration. I also built a couple of custom WordPress plugins to help manage their content.

One of the plugins helped users submit content and allowed moderators to reject or schedule submissions to be upcoming posts. Submitted photos could be re-sized, cropped and watermarked.

The second plugin gave them the ability to schedule background images (with sunrise and sunset dates) and make them linkable for advertising purposes.

Due to the high traffic that the site received it added an extra bit of spice that made this a fun project to work on.

Agency: Riser

Technologies:
HTML, CSS, Nanoc, JavaScript, Flash

Description:
This is one project I was really excited to be a part of. The TV show Legend of the Seeker hired us at Riser to completely re-build their site (design, code, the works).

I was in charge of doing all the HTML/CSS and JavaScript effects. What made this site a little challenging was the tight deadline we had (it was only about 3 weeks from design to delivery) and had to be completely static (no server side programming allowed).

Kickette

Jul 2009

Technologies:
PHP, CSS, Wordpress

Description:
I was contacted in July of 2009 to convert the popular European soccer/football site Kickette from Expression Engine to WordPress. Normally converting sites is pretty straightforward but this particular site had over 10,000+ posts. That's a lot of data to move!

After getting the bulk of all the work done I then passed the project off to some other developers to finish up. All in all it was a good project.

Kickette brands itself as the authority on soccer/football gossip, news and fashion. Written from a female perspective, Kickette was the first and largest dedicated site for female soccer fans at the time.

Description:
This project was done for HBOlab a.k.a. Runawaybox and was the first project I worked on at Riser. At the time HBOlab was a part of HBO but the company was eventually purchased by Break Media.

The site was made to host an internet tv series called Hooking Up. The concept was to take a bunch of YouTube "celebrities" and make a show with all of them in it. The site was only up a couple of months before HBO pulled the plug on this experiment.
