Contributor and committer to the open source Dojo Toolkit project
Interaction design and UI development for a suite of enterprise web-based applications.
While at Vignette I helped develop a uniform presentation layer for the product suite. I wore Ajax developer, accessibility evangelist, CSS and browser technologies expert and user-interface specialist hats. As a senior member of the UE team, I was involved in all stages of the product development process, from concept design, technical prototyping, production front-end code, though to troubleshooting and QA - across the suite of Vignette web applications.
My primary role at frog was to apply a specialist knowledge of HTML/CSS and period browsers to design execution, working within both the creative design and development teams. I helped bridge the gap between design and development, and raised standards in asset production and hand-off. I developed and refined best practices for deliverables and documentation.
