I started as a Production Intern and ended as a Front-End Developer. I was responsible for taking sites from .psd and making them into functional ExpressionEngine sites. I started by using XHTML and when HTML5 was born, I started using that and pushed my team to follow. I helped rebuild BSD’s default ExpressionEngine install to make sure we were responsibly using HTML5, led the team’s inital push into responsive design, and tried to convince everyone to use Sass to manage their CSS. I also assisted in hiring and created a standardized front-end interview process.

tools/libraries/frameworks I used and enjoyed:

  • ExpressionEngine
  • Github
  • HTML5 / CSS3
  • jQuery
  • jsPerf
  • Phpfog
  • SCSS / Compass
