Consulting was fun this summer. But I decided to settle on working full-time with Digital School Network, makes of Digital Scout and School Pointe, working primarily on the HS GameCenter product. This includes Android apps, a REST API using ServiceStack and .Net, and the front-end web site. In fact, today, I release the Android HSGC Basketball app.

It was four years exclusively with Horizons, but now I'm back consulting again. This spring, I have been working on a version of an existing higher-education product that we (me, the team at Infinum, and a few other organizations involved in the grant) are converting from ColdFusion to advanced Java server-side and a modern AJAX-based front-end using the ExtJS framework. Coming soon, I will add the link to the repository on Github so you can see the code. (As soon as the product has reached alpha early this summer when we will make the repository public.)

I'm still working hard at Horizons [Companies]. Last year we updated that site with a new layout and lots of videos. This year we added HTML5 videos - no Flash required. The videos will work on all major devices, including mobile! For browsers without HTML5 video support, there are Flash and Silverlight fallbacks. Our video team re-encoded over 150 videos at higher resolutions and in 3 different formats. And with the help of the excellent mediaelement.js library, they now play great in every device we've tested. Time for me to get back to making client sites look as good as ours...

Figured it was time for an update: The reason it has been so long since the last one is that a few recent projects with Horizons [Companies] went so well, they hired me full-time! Now I am swamped with clients who love me there too!

We are in the process of starting our third project with The Ohio State University's Business Operations division. We will be assisting with and directly adding to a an existing site in PHP. The new feature will include, among other things, a service-based active query to an external source (PeopleSoft) that will involve creating the query in XML, transmitting, and parsing the XML results.

The final publication stage of the new Columbus Public Schools' web site is upon us. It has been an exciting summer of work as we enabled this entirely new public web site to be easily accessible and maintainable by non-technical staff. In addition to the new and improved look of the site, it now even includes a mechanism where all of the 130 schools in the district can manage their own individual sites. This new, custom, automated system will enable more community interaction and enhanced communication with parents that is so important in maintaining a great relationship with those involved in the education of our youth.
