GPATS needed to replace an outdated web portal on the county website, in order to interact with the
community, involve more people, and just overall be more effecient. Hooking into the Google Maps API to
integrate their existing map files, I created a mobile-friendly site with room to grow.
Working with Mary Poole from York County BDSN
was a joy and a pleasure. York County BDSN needed a refresh to their previous website,
a portal to reach out to the challenged community in York County, and a central place
to communicate with their employees. Using a few plugins, including a calendar and the
Wordpress Members plugin, I built a mobile-friendly site with an employee portal, a blog,
and custom options.
By discovering the needs of this band, I was able to create a website that just
fit them to a T. Built on the Wordpress core, I used a few custom post types, with a
few plug-ins (Shadowbox, anyone?) to build the base of this site.
This is a personal project I completed to encourage myself to be more consistant
at reading the Bible. I used the NETbible API
to create a database of scripture passages, organized by week and day. Then I wrote
a PHP script that displays the passage based on the day. I formatted it in a style
that is easier to read and more focused than most online scripture services.
Being an eager young learner, I asked Jason Zwolak
for pointers on where to go and what to do next — and he suggested collaborating on
a project we are both passionate about: dancing. Together we created Footloose Upstate,
an event listing for social dances in the South Carolina Upstate area. Jason created the
basic PHP programming logic of the site, and gave me instructions and pointed me towards
online resources to help flesh it out. I am completely responsible for design, content,
and upkeep, and have continued to updated the code as I learn more.
Rather than order wedding invitations from a store, I decided to use the tools on hand and design my own invitations & programs. I wanted to create something beautiful with a little bit of whimsy, that represented our personalities well. Everything was designed in Gimp; the fonts are Philosopher by Erico Lebedenco and Freebooter Script by Apostrophic Lab.
You still might want to think about this a little more.
