I was brought on to the Who@ team to rebuild their original website and web app in a responsive design. Worked closely with devops, designer and back-end devs on the front-end of a LAMP (Python) stack.
The first challenge in rebuilding their website & web app was addressing all the performance issues. There were close to a hundred different icons and illustrations used.
Being in vector format, the new images also looked great on mobile devices or scaled in.
SASS is amazing, I followed the SMACSS philopshy which is excellent for organizing and maintaining CSS.
All scss files made CSS modular, and in the end all compiled down into a compressed CSS file for production.
You can view all examples posted on Github.
Our back-end was written in Python so I had to learn enough to create new Python views. Examples: Dashboard, Profile, FTUE(First time user experience). I would either make Python or API calls to get requests back for templates or JSON data.
I have a passion for crafting user experiences, if the web was built with LEGO I’d probably be using those some how.
While designing or coding I prefer listening to ambient music or a podcast, I follow the people over at css-tricks and read on smashing magazine to stay updated in the industry. My favorite code editor is Sublime Text 2.
For pleasure I listen to several podcasts including Let’s talk Bitcoin, Hardcore History or the Joe Rogan podcast, for hobbies I love practicing Jujitsu and Bikram yoga.
