I achieved expertise in front end design and development early on in my career which enabled me to develop back end programming skills while working as a front end developer. I am currently interested again in the latest trends in front end web application development with the new opportunities afforded by HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript libraries like Knockout JS. I am also interested in Drupal front end and back end module development, and general object oriented PHP development.

Concert help large companies communicate their pensions information to their employees. I took on a short term contract to completely redevelop their website on my own, in my own way, , working from supplied designs. I used Drupal 7 as the backend, and added CSS and structural code using the Unsemantic grid system, Modernizr, and HTML5 Boilerplate. The requirement was for a fully responsive site, working on most popular devices and IE8. The site employs some interesting user interface (UI) features including the jQuery Flipster plugin to create the coverflow or carousel on the Our work page, with a callback function to change displayed text as the user moves the slides and a full set of navigation links with anchor tags to navigate directly to a cover. I used jQuery cycle lite to run several rotating elements on the homepage with a callback function to change text which is then animated using the jQuery animate() function. I was able to consolidate my knowledge of CSS3 animation (on the homepage and Our services page mainly) and also I had the opportunity to implement the Skrollr feature for the Our services page. This wasn’t used in the final site but the feature is on The News page is also an interesting design with three articles displayed in a row with background images, quite tricky to implement with the articles coming from the database. In the CSS, I learnt to use the REM (Root EM) unit for setting font and line-height size and improved my knowledge of CSS3 generally.

Perform commercialises multimedia sports content across internet-enabled digital platforms. I was brought in as a contractor for two months (extended to three), working with JavaScript, HTML, and CSS mainly, to support their major contract with the Norwegian Football league to continue development of the websites and mobile websites for each team. I had to learn an in-house online development environment including basic version control and code editing tools etc, Freemarker, (a templating language working with a Java backend), and several Java service APIs to get data from various sources. There was also an in-house CMS for the content. I worked in a team with a Project Manager, Senior Developer, other developers, Testers and Quality Assurance experts, with Agile and Jira for project management, and increased my knowledge of CSS3. There was some work and testing on the mobile versions, including further development of a JavaScript device detection system to make a pop-up with several links to either the full version, mobile version or to download an app from Apple if on Apple device or Android if on Android device. Also I implemented a slide-in/out menu with CSS3 animations that you can see on (best viewed on mobile device, click the icon at top left). I was able to suggest an improvement, I noticed that some of the news articles had embedded videos and suggested that the user would be more interested in those articles so it would be nice to show the user that an article had an embedded video by adding an overlay to the thumbnail image for that article. The client also suggested they would like a filter, All, Videos and Text. I was able to implement this improvement that you can see here: Websites: all 32 websites for Norwegian football, they are all listed from from the NTF Network link in the top right.

As a specialist provider of internet-based content and services to the pharmaceutical sector, Pharmiweb Solutions have some interesting in-house tools and techniques. I learnt my way around a custom JavaScript toolkit which is used as the basis for some of their work, a hybrid single page application which uses html for the layout but JavaScript and JSON for the navigation and functionality, and can be extended with different languages and locales, with this content being held in a database which serves as a content management system. This produced challenges in layout because of different lengths of text in different languages, and I had to be very disciplined as I was working on many different major projects simultaneously in different languages, requiring great care and attention to detail. The projects featured heavy use of charts of various kinds, usually using SVGs, which were then animated in layers, so that was interesting to find out something about. I also increased my knowledge of CSS3 styling techniques, and was introduced to troubleshooting display and functionality problems for the web applications on the iPad. I learnt to use Jira for receiving tasks and time-keeping, Google Chrome for debugging JavaScript and increased my experience with Subversion. The backend was in C#.Net but I had little exposure to that, just adding the odd condition in the HTML. Unfortunately most of my work for this company is not in the public domain, but I did some troubleshooting and final touches on a redesign for

This was a three month contract to develop a JavaScript application for modeling employee benefits for Unum. We researched appropriate object oriented frameworks to help in this project, and we settled on Knockout JS, which is a Model-View-View-Model(MVVM) based framework for creating web apps with JavaScript. I also used HTML5 Boilerplate as the template. I worked closely with one other developer, helping him to understand and use JavaScript. I worked mainly on the front-end functionality, layout and creat
