Web Application Development

Custom Web Applications

I have designed multiple custom web applications including this website. These applications were built from the ground up without the use of any base platforms or frameworks.

Code examples available upon request.

Acidity Administration System™

Acidity is an easy to use, form based, administration system that can be customized for editing information in any type of database (used for content on websites, apps, signs, menu displays, etc) without having to worry about the layout or technical details. Acidity has other key features such as: pre-built plugins for popular content types (calendars, media galleries, products, services, staff members, etc), custom plugins for database administration, user account controls, a messaging system for admin users, and top teir security protocols to protect it all.

smartGallery Lightbox

smartGallery is a Javascript powered image lightbox plugin that can be added to almost any project using HTML and CSS classes. This plugin adds a fluid and modern feel to your web application by adding an image zoom function or gallery function to selected images based on the class names used. The plugin was originally created for a client's website but has been adpated to function with a wider set of paramaters to create smartGallery v2.1. smartGallery only requires knowledge of basic web technologies to set up and is available for download on the page linked below.

smartGallery is being used to create the image zooms and galleries on this page.

The South Carolina Equine Park is a custom informational website originally designed in 2015. The website features an interactive map and yearly event calendars with information for competitors. Much of the content on this site is dynamic and can be edit using custom plugins designed for Adcidity Administration System™. The front-end of the website was completed using html5, css3, javascript and jQuery to provide a modern feel with a great user experience. I have also spent time at the park taking photographs for use on the website and in other forms of media.

Westfall's Texas Style BBQ

This is a custom PHP driven website with a complex integration. The website's menu and other information can be edited using Acidity Administration System™. Acidity was also integrated with two menu displays above the counter in the store for real-time updates of prices, specials, and promotional images. For example, when the price of a meal was changed in Acidity it would change on the website and on the menus in the store at the same time. I provided services in web development and design, graphic design, photography, server management, and database integration to complete this project.

SCEP - Interactive Map

This custom interactive map is part of The South Carolina Equine Park website originally designed in 2015. The core functions of the map were created using Javascript, while some of the more advanced fetures use the jQuery Javascript library. I also created all of the graphics for the map and shot all of the photos with my Canon EOS Rebel.

Dental Care of Camden

Dental Care of Camden's custom informational website was designed in 2015. This website features photographs, directions, FAQ's, a contact us form and more. I provided services in web development and design, graphic design, photography and server management to complete this project. This was a redesign of the original which I designed in 2011.

Vintage Pianos

This is a custom informational website designed for Vintage Pianos of Camden, SC in 2016. The site features product listings which can easily be edited through a custom admin panel. The main functionality of this database driven website was developed using PHP and Javascript. Photography and graphic design services were also provided.
