This project consists of a marketing site and a file transfer site used by businesses to share files amongst their vendors, freelancers, etc. Both sites utilize object-oriented PHP and MySQL on the backend, and the file transfer site utilizes jQuery for heavy AJAX/dynamic UI development. Much of the UI interaction is built with parsed JSON objects, allowing client-side code to handle presentation and letting the back-end simply output data, important for code re-use. Sign up for a free trial to see the file transfer site in action.
This tool was built as an object-oriented Flash application to assist former TD Waterhouse customers converting to the new TD Ameritrade trading platform. All content is generated via XML for low-cost maintenance and ease of duplication should other tutorials be necessary in the future. We used the FuseKit library in order to streamline our animation process and reduce our reliance on the timeline.
LL Teach, providing teaching resources to children in grades K-12, wanted to improve their web presence and increase the amount of sales generated from their online store. I redesigned and reorganized their site to improve access to important information about their company and provide better integration of their Miva Merchant store into the site content. In addition I developed a custom Flash video player in order for them to demonstrate their teaching services to a wide audience.
This site presents six “stories” in online-book format, allowing the user to manually or automatically turn each page of the book, each highlighting a different facet of the client's consulting service. To keep costs low I heavily modified an existing page-turning function and converted into an ActionScript 2 class file for increased code modularity.
In order to reduce outside vendor costs, TD Ameritrade decided to build their Branch Locator tool in-house using the Google Maps API. All branch data is stored in a JSON object retrieved by an AJAX call when a user selects a particular branch. We utilized the jQuery library to streamline and standardize our code.
To prepare for a new promotional campaign, Blue Dolphin wanted to re-skin their entire site, as well as adding a new UI feature to allow users to find out more about each magazine before clicking. I integrated the new XHTML templates into the OSCommerce/PHP framework and implemented AJAX-generated tooltips using the jQuery library.
