Cross-Platform Mobile Hurricane Tracking App

Cross-Platform Mobile Hurricane Tracking App
Status:
Available For Download

My work:
  • Appcelerator Titanium
  • HTML5
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • Google Analytics
  • Adobe Photoshop

Mobile app built in Titanium for a major TV news station. The app pulls JSON data from the news station's API, which determines the content displayed within the app. Nearly all content is dynamic in this way, including radar maps, hurricane alerts, Twitter feeds, and video feeds--almost no content is hardcoded. All taps and screen changes are tracked as page views in Google Analytics. The app compiles for both iPhone and Android from the same code base. The app is available for download on both the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Customer-Facing Meal Delivery Selection Panel

My work:
  • HTML5
  • JavaScript
  • AJAX
  • jQuery
  • PHP
  • MySQL

This panel was to replace an existing UI for selecting meals for home or office delivery. The design was given to me as a PSD. Thumbnail images were assigned a file naming schema. All data, such as selected options and nutrition data, was retrieved and/or submitted via AJAX calls. My main contributions to this project were on the front end, where I wrote CSS and JavasScript. I also facilitated and oversaw the transfer of data for this project, from a CSV file into our database via a special PHP script.

My work:
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • PHP
  • Smarty
  • XML

This website was for a co-branded project with another company. The design was given to me as a PSD, and I coded it. At first I was only responsible for markup and CSS, but I gradually became the official point of contact, across both companies, for all technology issues on the project. This project also required some refactoring of our existing database, which I made contributions to.

Full Time Employer's Website Redesign

Full Time Employer's Website Redesign

Discontinued

My work:
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • YUI
  • PHP
  • Smarty
  • MySQL
  • XML

When I first started at this company, the existing website was less than ideal. It used tables for layout, and half the screen was a slow, clunky Flash object. I re-engineered the site to use a custom built modular layout system, which stored pages as XML files and injected content from them into the Smarty templating system. Interactive content was switched from one giant Flash canvas, to independent Javascript widgets and embedded Youtube videos. In the process, the old visual design was scrapped entirely, and replaced with a newer, much cleaner one that was given to me as a PSD.
