I’ve been in development, both front end
Below are a few projects that I’m really proud to have worked on. The list includes both personal projects and things I’ve worked on while employed by other companies. I believe owning your role, but not more than that. So I’ve tried my best to illustrate my role in each project in order to best represent my skillset. If you’re interested in working with me and think my skill set would be beneficial, get in touch.
UF Health Science Center Websites
As part of the team at UF Health Web Services, I work in both a design and development role. For the past year, I’ve helped design and develop a completely new look for the Health Science Center (which incorporates all medical colleges, labs, and institutes at the University of Florida) built to work completely with the new Gutenberg editor for WordPress. This project was both vast and complex. With more than eight years of legacy code in the current theme as well as over 700 websites and 2,000 editors to account for, to say this project was a challenge would be an understatement. My role encompassed all aspects of this project from estimates, planning, design, user research and testing, front end development, back end development, and even some server configuration. I’m really proud of this project not only because of the final outcome which is set to launch in days, but because it was also my first large scale implementation of ReactJS.
BuddyDrive is a plugin for WordPress that allows you to share files between users in BuddyPress. BuddyDrive was my first plugin for wordpress.org. I acquired it from another developer and set about making it even better. With a user base of over 10,000 active installs and translations for multiple languages, it’s quite a task. In 2018, I set about to rewrite the plugin completely from scratch in ReactJS. The new version is slated for release in Q1 of 2019. Check out BuddyDrive!
Builder Blocks is an entirely new plugin that I began developing in late 2018 after talking with Matt Mullenweg on twitter about the direction of WordPress plugin businesses. With more than 50 blocks slated for release in the first half of 2019, Builder Blocks aims to be the ultimate solution for developers, DIY-ers and other site builders in the WordPress ecosystem.
