Just for Fun...
- Guess the Number game
- For my Coursera class on Python, I built a "Guess the Number" game...I thought it would be fun to translate it into jQuery.
- A Drupal CMS-enabled site built for Independence Blue Cross/Blue Shield of South Carolina, this site incorporates a complex block structure implemented via Views, as well as an event feed using angular.js to hit the Eventbrite API. The client can continue to manage events through Eventbrite, but have the events display in a variety of contexts.
- Built on the Drupal CMS platform, this site supported the special events in the summer of 2015 in Philadelphia celebrating the 350th anniversary of Saint-Gobain. I implemented the provided design, from configuring the platform and databases to selecting and configuring modules, adapting the design to mobile implementations, and skinning with css. Integrated google maps, and provided "add to calendar" links to automatically add the event to iCal or Google Calendar. Incorporates videos served from media server Kaltura. The site served as a key piece of the Future Sensations Integrated Campaign, which received a Hermes Creative Award, Platinum Award in the "Integrated Marketing/Event Marketing" category.
- This corporate site showcasing Saint-Gobain Corporation's proppants business is built on the Drupal CMS platform. I implemented the provided design, from configuring the platform and databases to selecting and configuring modules, adapting the design guidelines for mobile implementations, and skinning with css. Winner of a Hermes Creative Awards 2015 Gold Award in the category of Business-to-Business Websites.
- DePuy Synthes Companies is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson; merging the two companies required a combined web presence. I was part of the international team that launched it in 2014.
- In 2013, Stein Mart launched their first ecommerce site on eBay Enterprise's proprietary platform. I served on the development team as a front end dev, configuring components and skinning with css.
- The Show N' Tell School site includes a custom-built php/mySQL CMS providing each location with a newsletter interface. I wrote much of the content on the site. We recently added a mobile component created using jQuery mobile.
- West Chester Area Day Care Center is a nonprofit day care center in West Chester. The "What's New" section on the home page is a custom-built php/mySQL CMS element that the staff can maintain and update.
- DANA, the Delaware Association of Nurse Anesthetists, uses their site to keep their membership informed. This WordPress site replaces the custom-built php/mySQL CMS we built several years ago.
- My hobby site, Gretchen Cooks, is my online kitchen home. A recipe database, this php/mySQL site I created with a partner hosts more than 1,000 recipes, and at its peak garnered over 1,000 visits a day. It's been a great sandbox for learning about analytics, SEO, photography... And delicious too!
- This WordPress site for a foundation in Swaziland allows them to maintain their own web presence.
- For Deane Clark, voice actor, with a partner, I created a custom-built php/mySQL CMS, providing him with the means to easily upload audio files from his home studio.
