The Gift of Education is an Online Gift registry for College Savings. It’s the Easiest way to contribute to a child’s 529 or savings fund.

On the backend I used the Zend Framework to organize the MVC code and many Zend Modules (such as Zend_Form) to keep the code DRY. There is integration with both Authorize.net and QuickBooks. This was the first site that our studio developed with multiple developers, which means extensive use of Subversion was a lifesaver. I also used Selenium on this project for automated testing, a big timesaver that I should have started using a long time ago. Design by Rashael Parker.

The Shops at Highland Village is an upscale shopping center in Texas. They needed an fresh website that would allow administrators to not only upload content, but also update calendar events, retailer listings, job postings, and store sales. WordPress was chosen as a base CMS, and custom plugins were created to the client’s specs for the calendar, directory, sales, and jobs databases. This combination allowed us to cost-efficiently develop a powerful and flexible solution. Flash and jQuery animations keep the site lively, all while maintaining standards-compliant XHTML for accessibility. Design by Brianne Leymaster
