Dreamworks Animations | Site + HTML5 Game
I was the lead back-end developer for the How To Train Your Dragon 2 franchise portal website and HTML 5 game.
We utilized a variety of technologies such as jQuery, PHP, Expression Engine built on CodeIgniter, HTML5/CSS3 and even a few RESTful AJAX calls! I am a big fan of the movies so I was very excited to work on this project.
I even managed to fix a bug in Expression Engine's muti-site manager tool - I'll be doing a blog post about it in the near future.
A&E | Interactive Game
I was responsible for the sysadmin setup and production asset management for this Bates Motel game. Launch coincided with Season 2 premier.
I leveraged nginx as a reverse proxy server which routed requests to local socket.io servers waiting to create a real-time connecting between the user's phone browser and their desktop browser. This allowed us to use the phone's capabilities and use it as a remote game controller! This is another topic I will be writing a blog post on soon.
Oscar De La Renta
One of my favorie projects I've worked on - an art project inspired by a simple question... What is beauty? Legendary fashion designer Oscar de la Renta set out to ask the internet what they thought... but don't tell him, show him.
For this project I utilized PHP, CodeIgniter, RedBean ORM, HTML5/CSS3, Twitter/Facebook API and AJAX to create this work of art.
