Web Development: PHP/mySQL, Javascript
02/18/2005 PHP/mySQL, Javascript: L.O.S.E.R. website

This was a fairly quick one for the good folks of the Loose Organization of Surreal Ethereal Realists, just taking my CMS and applying a new design and Javascript functionality to it. The icons were designed by Frank Ferarro, which I then sliced up and used as rollovers. I also incorporated my nearly-HTML-free tagging functions, for easier maintenance by people who don't do coding for a living. While the site's content is very 1.0 at the moment, there are a lot of nice things under the hood that will likely come out in due time.

02/13/2005 PHP/mySQL, Javascript: Mikesell Design website

I've been working with designer Jenny Mikesell on a numbmer of projects since last summer, the latest of which is to revamp her site. I used some of my CMS code, but the client's specific requirements for this portfolio site meant that I did a fair amount of custom work, and fine tuning to ensure consistent behavior from page to page and from browser to browser. Like most of my recent sites, this one has a fully functional administrative area, so that she can maintain and organize her own content on her own timetable.

11/03/2004 PHP/mySQL, Javascript: Washington Mutual internal promotion site, for Gifts By Design

Washington Mutual, Inc. has requested a number of upgrades to the promotional site during the last month, so I've been working on enhancements as the programming wing of Gifts By Design for this project. I think all of us were surprised at how many people participated in this--this project generated a lot of data very quickly, and I'm glad that I designed the site's structure to make use of running totals. Fresh recalculations of everything would have resulted in a brutal server load, given the amount of data and the sheer numbers of people using the site. Apparently within the bank, it's become quite popular. (URL not provided, as the site is for internal Washington Mutual use only.)

10/01/2004 PHP/mySQL, Javascript: Washington Mutual internal promotion site, for Gifts By Design

I've spent September working on a site internal to Washington Mutual, for an incentive contest they're doing through October and November. People inside the bank enter their transactions, and others in the bank can see how everyone's doing--groups, regions, and individuals. For this project, I did a lot of PHP/mySQL for site functionality, with a lot of Javascript and CSS work (showing/hiding menus and menu options) to ensure usability. For this one, I worked with the fine folks at Gifts By Design, who handled both the design and project management. We had a tight, inflexible deadline, and a number of changes and requests leading up to it, but we did launch on time, and the site's in serious use already.

10/01/2004 PHP/mySQL, Javascript: Portfolio Manager, Tajima Creative

On top of my other project for October 1, I've also built a portfolio managing system for the fine folks at Tajima Creative Group. They handled the design and specified it, and I built it in the week from September 24 to October 1. Features include setting up different portfolios for different clients to view, an easy system for adding examples of work to those portfolios, and organizing them. Popup windows show the details of each piece. I built most of the functionality in PHP/mySQL, and incorporated various Javascript niceties to improve the user experience for administrators. This was a fun one. (No URL for this, as it's for internal use by Tajima Creative and their clients.)
