I led the design and development of a mobile application specializing in personalized gift giving and leveraged such technologies and platforms as Heroku, Appcelerator, Node.js, Auth0, and Stripe. I also created a marketing website and administrative portal. My time was spread equally across user experience, interface design, architecture, project management, technical documentation, and back-end development.
I was a member of the three-person team that successfully launched the solution in December 2015. While the iOS version took priority, the Android version was a fast follower in early 2016.
Once the first version of the application was in production, the second phase enabled my team to add a number of new features and improvements to the app, including new Facebook capabilities (sharing) and a new Heroku development pipeline. Recognizing that today’s development teams are measured by how quickly they can promote code into production, I began laying the foundation towards a culture of “continuous integration” and automated code reviews.
The second phase also allowed me to create new support visuals and consolidate a wealth of documentation that had been previously captured across numerous notebooks.
Due to a responsibility transfer and re-platforming decision in late 2016, the visuals shared here are not reflective of the current production environment.
