Dead Blog?

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

Hey everyone this is where a Wordless Wed post should go, and would go, had I not been so busy lately working on the relaunch of Food Network Canada. This project kept me and the team here super busy but it for the most part it was fun and enjoyable (as fun as working 50-60 hour weeks can be.

Near the end of my last gig I was not being challenged to the level I wanted so it was great to be a part of this big project and be given a sizable chunk of the site to work on.

In a nutshell I was tasked with a lot of the third party integration. This included adding JS-kit/Echo commenting and integrating the look of the site into Community Server. I had worked with Community Server before at my first job but never to this degree.

It was a real test of my front end development (and general development skills) and it was cool that I was able to figure out things that previously I would have handed over to a developer. I was doing things in CS that previously I let a back end developer do. The project really tested my skills as a front end developer and while there are still lots of little bugs to fix all of the heavy lifting is done and I am proud to say that I was a part of it.

Anyway working on this project coupled with growing kept me pretty busy but I should be back with some treats now. Sorry for keeping you waiting.

Watch this in the meantime:
