It all started as a spare time project. We had moved the blogging features of BKV.com into a Wordpress site, but left everything else to exist in a separate CMS. As working in the CMS was proving to be more problematic day to day, I decided to see what it would take to move the remaining site (almost entirely static content) into a static site generator. Its time to start mixing chemicals Dr. Jekyll.
This is a small site we created for an RFP to BB&T. As its content was meant to be static, I decided to build it using Jekyll.
Have you ever taken a survey that used images for answer options? Not only have I, but I have also built those same surveys. They look horrible.
I helped Infosurv develop the Infosurv Concept Exchange (iCE). iCE is a prediction market system that depends on the influences of crowd mentality to predict outcomes in the real world.
A secondary project at Infosurv was to build a Survey and Reporting Tool (SRT). This project was meant to take the place of our existing survey software. My work in the project was in the frontend design and construction.
In an effort to help drive change in Infosurv’s website design, I rebuilt it using the Jekyll static-site generator. I took most of the original design’s components and made tweeks to them to both look and function better. It was my desire to remove alot of the cruft that has built up and make our site faster for end users and less server/database intensive on the backend.
Keeping track of time on projects is annoying when you don’t have some kind of tool to help you. A tool that can be incorporated into your daily process. That is why I built myself a task management tool that would also track time.
