Isisfriends is a social media site with a focus on online gaming. I was one of the main developers on this project, and played a major role in the usability and layout of the site. It gave me an opportunity to work with newer technologies (NoSql, NodeJS, web sockets, Graph DB). From the ground up we built a social media site much like Facebook or Google+. It allows users to post on their wall, share with others, group and become friends with other users. All well keeping gaming at the centre of it's focus.
This was a rather large project that was delivered on time and under budget. Built using Kentico, .NET and Flash for the games. I was the primary developer on this project. Along with the development of the site I also handled development of many of the games you'll find on the site. Overall a fun project to work on.
The Toronto Entertainment District's website was taken over from a previous company. So a large challenge with this one was to rework the old code to co-operate with our new business objectives / design. The site is built on Drupal 5.5, PHP, MySQL, jQuery, Google Maps Api. There is also a Mobile site and Facebook page which all pull from the same database / CMS.
D'italiano's site is built on Drupal 6, PHP, MySQL, jQuery. This site was mainly a taxonomy exercise. Each product is categorized and can have several recipes associated with each one. Each recipe is then categorized and can also have a video associated with it. There is also a Mobile site for mobile browsers.
Wonderbread's site was built using Drupal, PHP, MySQL and jQuery. The site also figures out where the user is from using their ip address and displays the appropriate content based on their location. There is also a mobile site that displays based on the user's agent. Wonderbread has contests time to time. The most successful we launched was a Facebook contest that mimicked Groupon's idea and gave better prizes the more people "liked" Wonderbread's Facebook page. This resulted in 20k user's to sign up within 1 week.
This is Ferrero Canada's product site. It was developed using PHP, MySQL, JQuery, Google Maps Api (store locator). The site has a mobile version which is served up by detecting the user's agent. There is also an ongoing contest which has an admin area for submission statistics.
This site was built using Kentico CMS in .NET. Emphasis was on keeping the site super easy to update, while keeping the site robust enough to handle all their needs. The client in the end was ecstatic with the site.
This site was originally meant to be a flash site which was later decided to be regular html site. So the challenge in this one was to keep the fluidity of flash while building upon the Kentico CMS (.NET) . The site offers a lot of user interactive eye candy, while supply an easy to use backend for the client.
Munk Debates is built on a .NET platform. My roll was to create a streaming viewer for a live debate. Despite a huge amount of traffic, the debate went off without a hitch.
I built this site from head to toe. Including design. Adrian wanted a site that he could easily upload photos and change the look of the site. As he was an avid facebook user I used their api to pull in his portfolio. Essentially making facebook his cms for the site.
