Experience

Zero Value - html, css, javascript, ajax, php, sql, json api’s, cron jobs, appPresser

I was the developer for the website, web app, and mobile app, as well as partial owner of the company. I created a custom plugin that allowed our team to create 'signals' of when/what to buy/sell in cryptocurrencies and the Forex market. These signals would be emailed, tweeted, and pushed on the mobile app, depending on the user’s subscription level. Users could turn off specific coins or entire exchanges. The values of the coins were updated every 30 seconds to 1 minute depending on the api's limits for each exchange. We also partnered with Coinigy so we could accept a json string of all the markets and coin data from a single point. When the coins buy/sell limits were hit or their fail point, the system automatically updated the status of the call. The mobile app was built using AppPresser for wordpress, and was for iPhone and android. It was a custom built theme, using mobile jquery and ajax to pull in data.

Marijo

With the success of her first site, Marijosee asked me to help her work on a site just for kids. Her idea was to have the site be a coloring book, with her poster being the background to color in.

I used a full size html canvas to produce the background poster, and added crayons of various colors for the children to select, with different sizes. They children could also print out their coloring.

After a while of having a black and white website that required coloring, I made another kids site for Marijosee that only had the coloring book on a single page. This drastically improved the look of the site, especially when changing pages.
