Online Game Pieces

I decided to recreate the interface from the 2014 McDonald’s Monopoly Online game using flexbox, jQuery and CSS animations and Sass

CoderSpace Student Roster

To give the CoderSpace students an introduction to JavaScript and jQuery, I built a class roster site that would let them filter students by characteristics such as team or year in school.

Images Added to jCarousel

I knew the way I’d configured my placeholders wouldn’t work when I added my art because overflow=hidden would clip the height off of the art. To replace my placeholder blocks with images I had to: Position the images to the bottom of their container ul#carousel (green) Keep the overflow:hidden on ul#carousel and make the height… Read more »

JavaScript Troubles and Success!

Yesterday I continued working on the 2014 family reunion website. When I’d last worked on the site, adding jCarousel had thrown my footer layout into complete chaos.
