    Sacrificed

    I helped in the development of the Award-winning Facebook application Whopper Sacrifice, which turned heads when it was first introduced in 2008.

Read More I was not only working on the development of the site but also keeping in touch with the company that manages the shopping cart and server architecture.

Front-end and back-end are continuously tested to make sure the integration and maintenance works properly at all times.

    Original Site Redesigned

    This website was almost entire built using Flash ActionScript. The section I developed was JavaScript-based, which utilized Ajax calls to communicate the front-end with the back-end when the user needed to know if one of the items displayed on the site was available on his/her market. Only three cities in the United States were selected to test the pilot program. The user's location was obtained Read More based on his/her IP address since browser Geolocation was not widely supported at the time. If an IP address match was found, then a list of stores where the new product was offered would make its way to the staging area; otherwise, a link to print the package was displayed instead.

    The Policy Finder web form was built for the purpose of finding unclaimed life insurance policies.

I utilized several validation Read More and scripting techniques to move from one section to another along with Ajax calls to verify claimed insurance availability.

    I was the Lead Developer for this Adobe Flash-based Facebook application which purpose was to match individuals with Volkswagen models. The application's algorithm looked through all of basic and extended information on a Facebook user's profile and, depending on what was available, provided the user with what would be his/her perfect Volkswagen match. Read More The limitation of the application was that it depended solely on the information the user had on his/her profile; the more information it obtained, the better the match; on the other hand, if little information was available, the application would default to one of the basic car models.
