I have left Adecco NA and am now consulting on a project that is being built with Angular 2 and Ionic 2. It has been an incredible learning experience, and I am excited to dive fully into an Angular/Typescript development process. Since we are building a brand new product, I am taking the opportunity to dive into a few other tools I’ve heard a lot about over the last two years. I chose Sketch to replace Photoshop as my design tool, Invision with the Craft plugins for the interactive high fidelity prototype design process. One of my favorite features is live syncing which can help the discovery process and garner immediate feedback during functional demonstrations with stakeholders. As usual, I used Balsamiq for the low fidelity prototype.
We have completed the application above and are now building another Ionic2/Angular2 application that uses a Salesforce backend with ForceJS, which is built on ES6 (Js 2016) enabling seamless development integration with Ionic2/Angular2. More details to come…
Development teams seek me out for visual design, re-skinning, information hierarchy, usability, iconography, improving task flow, improving the front end build process and more.
I specialize in creating engaging solutions to solve real world problems while designing beautiful applications that make the lives of users easier.
With years of practical experience, I’d be a tremendous addition to your development team because I have been confronted with and designed solutions to almost every UI scenario you can think of. Whatever the issues may be, I have the confidence and ability to solve them.
For most of 2016 I was employed by Adecco Group NA where we used Bootstrap, Grunt, Gulp, Sass, Knockout, SiteCore, and C#. The team uses an Agile development process with VersionOne software to track sprint progress, Team Foundation Server, and HP Application Lifecycle Management to track bugs. It was exciting to be engaged in a thorough agile process, and I have written an article on the process.
