Work

Buink specializes in the creation and maintenance of web and mobile applications that support our client’s business strategy. Our focus is JavaScript (for web and mobile) and we also have a solid background in PHP.

Buink’s founder, Ben Buie, started developing websites in 2006 when he taught himself to code while building MyNiceTie. Over the years he has continued to learn while building many other web assets for clients including Reebok, Sherwin Williams, Brunton, Winter Park, and others as well as for his own startups.

The following posts are development projects that make up Buink's work portfolio:

IOS App In Ionic (Angular/Typescript)

Team: Ben Buie Lexi | 5/18/16

On the heels of my last IOS app in React Native, I started this project in Ionic. The designs were already done and it was my job to implement them in a cost effective way. At first, the client pushed really hard to build this in Ionic 2 (using Angular 2). At the time, Angular Read More >>

IOS App in React Native

Team: Ben Buie Nathan | 2/23/16

Super fun project and very stressful! I’m usually the developer on all my projects but a new client had a supper quick timeline, “rocket speed” he said. I had a 4 weeks to locate some developers to help, design several views, and implement them in IOS. My first task was to decide on a technology to use. Read More >>

Dynamic SVGs using Angular

Team: Ben Buie | 2/4/16

I’ve used SVGs many times in the past but I’ve never been tasked to build dynamic drawings with them…until now. Unfortunately, I can’t share an actual picture of the project because it could identify a client that has asked to stay anonymous, so you’ll have to use your imagination. I was given the task to Read More >>

Customer Page – Angular Front-end and Laravel Back-end Api

Team: Ben Buie | 1/28/16

Unfortunately, my best client right now doesn’t let me identify them publicly. Luckily, they allow me to talk in general about the work, so here we go! This project was truly full-stack including UX/UI, high fidelity wireframes, front-end (html, scss, JavaScript, etc.), api architecture, and database architecture. The page addition is part of a super Read More >>

Adding Features In Laravel 4 & Angular

Team: Ben Buie | 12/29/15

I got a new client about a month ago that wants to remain anonymous. I don’t like that, but they insisted. I’ve already had one other client ask for this as well, so it must be pretty common. I think it is mostly for competitive reasons. One reason I love this project is it is built Read More >>

Real Estate Sites

Team: Ben Buie Lexi | 12/10/15

I’ve done a little work with Hearthfire Creative in the past couple months that I thought I’d mention. Lexi, the founder, is uses an affordable combination of some cool technologies to improve the usability of real-estate sites. Lexi did most of the work, but reached out to me for some technical help when needed. Both sites Read More >>

SpaceNav API with Oauth 2.0

Team: Ben Buie | 11/19/15

Lots of technologists are moving towards separating the front-end and back-end of their web assets. The front-end of a site becomes a stand-alone application that consumes endpoints (http accessible URLs) for business purposes. The back-end becomes an API, or a group of endpoints. There are lots of reasons for doing this; one is that it makes it easy to Read More >>

Boulder Bike Tours

Ben Buie | 10/21/15

I hired a handyman to do some work on my house and it turned out he needed a website. Like many small businesses, he had a very small budget, so small that I typically can’t help much. I gave him some options and we came up with a plan that worked for him. Herschel, my Read More >>

SpaceNav Charts Page and Endpoints

Team: Ben Buie | 9/22/15

I’ve posted about working with SpaceNav before, but I just finished building a cool page that I wanted to share. I’m really excited about this project because I got to do everything for the page, including the PHP endpoints. We’re in the process of migrating the whole site over to be an Angular front-end and Read More >>

Reebok Customer Service Pages

Ben Buie | 9/18/15

I wasn’t supper excited about this project when I got it, but it turned out to be really interesting. Voltage had built several customer service pages that were populating the content dynamically using JavaScript but Reebok requested it be changed to to be hard-coded for SEO purposes. Because Reebok is built in Demandware, this was a significant Read More >>
