Sites

AOL WAGSs matching game

AOL WAGs area is a special interest feature to engage with Celebrity focused customers. I was tasked with developing an interactive game to increase page views by offering a fun, viral destination for AOL’s web audience. This game was written entirely in javascript and tested to function across all major browsers.

Canada(re)

The Canada(re) site is a tourism board developed to encourage users to visit Canada. I was tasked with developing the site in CSS, w3c compliant code. I also coded a ‘picture slideshow’ in pure Javscript. The slideshow, automatically grabs all the pictures in a ‘ul’ list, randomly initialising them into a slideshow. The result is clean, web friendly code and the entire javascript can even be sourced in a external file.
