More information: Working directly with Matches Fashion I was initially tasked to do a general code tidy

  • Taking over form the last developer and fixing any ongoing issues. I then continued to work take ownership of a new feature called “Inspire”. I carried out the following:
  • Manipulated WordPress RSS feeds to display within the new website using the Google Feeds and Isotope jQuery plugins.
  • Taking ownership of a new online feature called “inspire”. Providing advice and solutions to elements the creative team had requested.
  • Cleaning up old JavaScript libraries while creating new libraries ensuring compatibility with their new e-commerce CMS.
  • Manipulated the old homepages in to their new design whilst cleaning code and implementing their new CMS.
  • Ensured the new design was cross browser compliant and placing fall backs where needed (e.g: Internet Explorer 6)
  • Tweaking their mobile website to display elements correctly (jQuery touch)
  • Creating and updating e-mail newsletters
  • Tidied up and fixed WordPress issue; introducing a dynamic header that loaded depending on where you left the main website from.
  • All code was documented and commented for future developers.
  • Finding resolutions for features that lacked in their new CMS: dynamic sub navigation highlighting – a Javascript URL reader was used to match what page was currently being viewed and ensuring it was “future proof”.
  • Assisted the current developer with new CSS and HTML techniques; moving them away from old tabular developing.
