In this is version of my webiste, I updated all the styles contemporary
with the latest HTML5 boilerplate. Noteably, I added dynamic content
filtering, asynchronous database retrieval, and real-time viewport scaling.
I was the sole designer and developer on this project.
As illustration of my creative process and approach to software
engineering projects, I developed an enhanced version of the classic
“Hangman” game as a dynamic, multi-layered web-app on a local Apache web
and later published it as a web-app integrated with bryan.WOLFFORD.com v2.
I was the sole designer and developer on this project and author of the
Since accepting the position as website committee chair and webmaster for
the local Hawaii group of American Mensa, I have driven the effort to
upgrade the website contempry with HTML5 and CSS3 standards while focusing
on content delivery and user experience. Notably, the host does not provide
a database so Google APIs were employed to eschew the need for one, while still
providing secured directories, documents, maps, calendars, and notifications.
Built to service the several clients and contractors for which I was
responsible at the time, version 2 of bryan.WOLFFORD was very feature rich
and developer friendly, as it was also used as a sandbox for several pieces
of technology that I was pivotal in developing, including: a full e-commerce
suite, service ticket manager, secured FTP transfers, scheduling and calendar
tools, custom photo galleries, a dynamic blogging service, and more...
I developed this small project out of dissatifaction with the standard, paper
character sheets that are provided by Wizards of the Coast for use when playing
Dungeons and Dragons v3.5e. I designed and populated a mySQL database with all
the important data, then serve it to the CSS-styled HTML page via PHP. Several
auto-calculations are made so the focus can stay on the adventure, not the minutia.
This website was developed with a community of gamers in mind. It was used
for several years to delivery news, notifications, rules, schedules, etc, as
well as provide a collection of resources and out-of-game communication.
This very short project was analysis of the main game mechanic of the Facebook
game developed by Zynga. Once the data was recorded in a mySQL database, standard
accounting ratios are calculated in PHP and the results of which populate the
column-sortable table. Additionally, I developed an experimental graphing feature
implemented completely in PHP and HTML using only a table and a div.
This project was outsourced to me by another IT company whom had
won a contract from Aramark to develop a SCORM compliant e-Learning
portal for their management training and organizational development.
The resulting portal was entirely designed and developed by me, and
featured multi-level user authentication, training and usuage tracking,
a full content management system for administrators, and a content
delivery system that supports HTML and Adobe Flash eLearning modules.
