Hearing Med, Intell-A-Hear Alliance startup

Web Developer / UI / UX Designer

Roseville, CA
MAY 2013 – AUG 2013

 

 

Main web work was centered around several projects that were related to opening stores in the Sacramento and Yolo counties. There were three new locations that were opened while I was working on a new sales website. The main functionality of this WordPress CMS based website was to provide a way for the owner to customize a quote of sales projections easily, based on a few parameters. These paramerters were integrated into a form and upon sumbission it would dynamically populate an open source-based chart for the visitor.

Ultimately the technologies used in this project were HTML, HTML5, CSS3 – AJAX, JQuery and some PHP and a MySQL connection to a database.

The other bit of technology that was integrated was a scheduling system and way to modify a PDF composition for a client after being uploaded by the hearing med staff. The idea was have a way to quickly create revs of ads by enabling a client to update (markup) a PDF composition, then save changes, alerting all parties to the changes automatically.
