Welcome To Our Portfolio Page
Here is our portfolio showing the details of some of the websites we have worked on in the past, including the history behind them and how they were built.
This website was an experiment a friend of mine suggested as a challenge. He wanted to be able to display a gallery of photographs and requested these features:
- There would be several categories of photographs and there should also be a method to display just one category or all categories.
- On desktop/laptop machines the image title should be hidden until a mouse hover event causes the title to appear on the image along with a border around the image.
- Upon clicking on the image a full screen version should be displayed.
- The image gallery should be displayed properly on smartphones and tablets.Therefore, each row of images should shrink based on the screen width of the device being used.
I began by locating a free plugin that would display the photographs in the gallery layout the customer requested. I hid the image titles and then modified the CSS settings so a hover event would display the title on top of each image. Because the plugin was not designed to be responsive and did not work properly with mobile devices, I modifies the CSS settings. This allowed the rows of images to automatically adjust based on the screen width.
Live Speed Dating Events
The customer created the original website using Microsoft Expression Web. She wanted the website converted to WordPress to take advantage of the huge selection of WordPress plugins available. This needed to be an exact duplicate of the old site, including the colors and the layout. Also, the customer did not want the website re-designed to display properly on mobile devices. If you review this website, be certain to also view this page.
I was able to duplicate the two main pages in WordPress for this customer and I also provided documentation explaining how to update the details for each dating event. Since the page is so complicated and difficult to update I suggested an easier solution. I could create an application that would automatically re-generate the web page from event details in an Excel spreadsheet. When new events were scheduled she would simply update the spreadsheet and then click a button. The customer was evaluating this concept when her funding was withdrawn and she consequently cancelled the project.
The websites in our portfolio above will give you some idea of the projects we have tackled here at Persson Technologies. However, the best example of what we have created is the Persson Technologies website you are viewing now!
