A Nightmare on Elm Street Fankit


Yeah! my Fankit framework lives on.

Anthem Connects

This site is built using the CodeIgniter PHP framework. Very happy with this framework so far. It does everything I wanted a framework to do.

The site is mostly static content except the Health Footprint and 10-day boost sections.

The Health Footprint Calculator is heavy on Javascript. The front-end experience was built using jQuery. The back-end is driven by PHP and MySQL. Users can register account, take the quiz and track their scores. A admin tool was also included. It allows the admin to add new questions, answers, weight for each answer,
The 10-day boost is simple. List of youtube videos plus some social elements.

Development time: 3 weeks

VW Jetta Blog

It has been quite busy since I joined Deutsch LA. Today, I finally got some time to update my portfolio. This is another Wordpress blog I finished. First time using Wordpress 3 and its multi-site capability. The blog has poll, some Facebook elements, gallery and a homepage carousel. Found a couple useful plugins such as NextGEN Gallery, Widget Context and Shadow JS.

Development time: 2 weeks.

Clash of the Titans Fankit


I worked on a Fankit web application for Harry Potter back in July 2009 while I was at Crew Creative. It was created in a way that it can be reused for other sites easily. Today I saw Clash of the Titans Fankit site is up. I'm happy that Warner Bros likes the application and decided to use it again. This means a lot to me.

ReBuildUS, my first startup experience

After Crew Creative closed down, I decided to join a startup company(ReBuildUS.com) that is building a online foreclosure marketplace platform. The company has a great business model and mission statement.
  • To put distressed residential properties back into productive use.
  • To rebuild communities by filling the holes left by foreclosure.
  • To create jobs and the opportunity for financial independence.
  • To give hard-working Americans a new way to buy a house.
  • To rebuild the American Dream.
After some nights and weekends, the site is launched today. Check it out, you may find a house you like.
