Outrage DC

Since its launch in the spring of 2012, this website has been sold to Washington Blade and has been slightly changed from how I left it.

I developed Outrage DC website for a client in the spring of 2012. Although an off-the-shelf theme was used as the base, a lot of custom development went into this one. I really liked this project because features such as the infinite scroll (where the next set of cards is loaded with Ajax when the user scrolls to the bottom of the page) and the calendar functionality took a quite a bit of programming. Most challenging tasks were handling recurring events, events with end-times spanning to the following day to mention a few. The backend UI also required a lot of custom Ajax functionality to be able to quickly manage a large number of events.

NOTE: Outrage DC is a pretty rowdy site catering to DC’s gay community and some of the content might be NSFW.

Hispanic Communications Network

Hispanic Communications Network (HCN) is a social marketing communications firm in Washington, DC. As their name suggests, they help their clients reach the Hispanic community of the U.S. using social marketing campaigns and their extensive network of affiliated radio stations.

HCN contacted me in the spring of 2011 wanting to redo their website. We decided to use an existing theme as the base and modify that. Initially this website was hosted at Hostgator, but due to abysmal performance, the website was migrated onto MediaTemple’s dedicated DV server in March 2013.
