To be an integral part of a system design, development, implementation and support team, where I can apply my current skills and expand my knowledge of Internet system design and development, new Web technologies within the Open Source arena, in a fast-paced and challenging environment, while evangilising the RESTful principles of the Web and their importance to businesses and Web software development.
Tribal London worked in partnership with A&EDDB London to build and deliver the new consumer facing web site for the Exxon EssoCard payment card across 9 markets in Europe. The site was designed and built from the ground up as an adaptive HTML build to scale the site and functionality from desktop to mobile touch devices.
I was technical lead and responsble for data capture functionality, content management and multi-lingual support for 11 locales, HTML build, and SalesForce integration.
For Christmas 2012 we promoted Marmite by sponsoring the Oxford Street Christmas Lights, as a part of this Tribal installed a 2.4m LED screen into one of the lights surrounded by a santa hat and beard onto which the public could place their face to be part of the lights.
I designed and built the system for capturing users photos and pushing them to the screen and capturing an image of the Oxford Street scene from cameras mounted on the street.
During the buildup to Christmas 2009, we developed an online game for Hasbro to promote a new version of the Monopoly board game. We created an online massively multiplayer game of Monopoly played upon a Google Maps mashup, allowing players to buy any street in the World and earn rent and build buildings upon them.
Tribal designed and built a new global Guinness.com website for the famous beer brand and migrated it away from a Microsoft Sharepoint Server setup to a LAMP stack.
I was responsible for designing a site architecture that would allow individual local territories to update and manage their own sections of the site without effecting other territories work while still allowing for global site-wide updates. Separate SVN repositories for each locale and careful segmenting of the codebase was designed to allow development, testing and deployment of each of the 14 locales in isolation while still making sure that the whole site worked together as a whole.
We designed and built the new look Marmite Web site, using the distinctive love/hate theme to create a dual personality site. I was responsible for defining and building HTML page templates and CSS that would translate the graphically intense and visually impacting design into a standards compilant and accessible Web site.
We developed an online game for Hasbro in collaboration with DDB London. We placed GPRS enabled GPS devices in 18 London cabs and tracked their movement around the city, turning the capital into a real life game of Monopoly. We used PHP and MySQL exclusively for storing and processing over 190,000 users data in real time. I worked mainly on the SMS integration and the initial HTML/CSS build.
In March of 2006 we developed a Web based personality profiler for a Guardian Jobs promotion. I designed the PHP/MySQL backend that collected the user data and processed it overnight to generate the statistics the site is based around. I was also responsible for developing the sites information architecture and building the HTML/CSS.
We created a bespoke community forum system for Philips to promote discussion around their corporate positioning of simplicity in product design. I designed and built an MVC based PHP/Smarty/MySQL application framework to build the site upon and worked along side a HTML/CSS developer to produce an accessible and modern community site.
I designed and built a Web and e-mail based ticket system for internal use by the TribalDDB Volkswagen team. The system allows the management team, developers and the client keep track of outstanding work and it's progress from a single Web based interface.
I spec'd, developed and built a CMS system and Web site for antipodean specialist travel agent Austravel. The project involved HTML/CSS build, development of a Web based content management system, user training, and support and maintenance.
PHPDoctor is an attempt to create a simpler and faster PHPDoc (Javadoc style comment parser for PHP) that produces standards compliant HTML.
The project is open source (GPL2) and available from Github
Tonic is an open source less is more, RESTful Web application development and Web site management PHP script designed to do things "the right way", where resources are king and the framework gets out of the way and leaves the developer to get on with it.
The project is open source (MIT) and available on Github.
Krista and I travelled to Australia in August of 2002 flying into Sydney where we bought a Volkswagen Kombi van to travel around the country and to become our home for the next 8 months. As part of this journey, I took over 1300 pictures of Australia and New Zealand, ranging from outback Northern Territory OZ to picturesque South Island NZ.
