PORTFOLIO

MCDUFFPHYSICS.COM

I designed and developed a database backed website to manage my classes. I developed my own homework platform for assigning, checking, and grading physics homework. Languages Used: PHP, Javascript, SQL

Calagator.org

I have been contributing to the development of the Calagator rails engine. Calagator is an open source community calendaring platform. My contributions have primarily been front end contributions. I redesigned many of the mobile page styles and contributed to refactoring the JavaScript to make it compatible with Turbolinks. I have also contributed to the ruby code as well by implementing a time-based filter option.

I designed the page to merge the color scheme of Material Design Lite with the grid system of the Foundation framework. The goal of this porject is to create a helpful resource for new developers in the Atlanta Area.
