    Leave a Comment

    GSReptiles.com officially launched as of 03/27/2014. GS Reptiles specializes in the breeding of Carpet Pythons and Green Tree Pythons for sale. The owner of the site wanted to have a web presence and contacted me to build a site that would allow him to quickly and easily add and remove snakes. He wanted a simple and clean design that wouldn’t distract from the snakes.

    The home page displays snakes in a tiled fashion. The snakes can be filtered using the menu bar along the top, providing the user a quick way to narrow down by collections.

    Hovering over a tile will display the type of snake, but will also allow you to click on the tile to access additional details about the snake.

    The detail page provides information about the snake and a larger image of it.

    The site can be fully updated by the website owner as needed and is responsive to different devices.

    The images above represent the proposed design and implementation for the site. Ultimately, the client chose to modify the layout slightly. The final site implementation can be seen at gsreptiles.com.

  2. Team Foundation Server 2010 Implemented at Client Site

    After a couple of months of planning, implementation, and tuning, I managed to successfully install Team Foundation Server 2010 at my client. The use of TFS is a huge step forward for my client. Although we had source control and issue tracking already in place, they were implemented using tools that were from separate vendors and didn’t communicate with each other. Team Foundation Server’s integrated environment offers a centralized location for our users, team members, and managers to review project progress and to store artifacts for the project. In addition, we were manually generating the builds, so the build service feature is also a great feature for my client. My client is looking forward to working with the product set and I will post our findings as we progress.
