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 >>

Shopify Theme

Ben Buie | 9/8/15

This was a fun project and a little bit stressful. The fun was because I got to develop the Shopify theme from the ground up using the new Shopify Plus features, the stress was because they added several pages and features after I gave the them an estimate. We went a little over budget (it Read More >>

Summit Access WordPress Theme

Ben Buie | 8/26/15

This was an interesting project. I don’t usually build websites using an existing theme, but that was the client’s request so I obliged.  It worked out and their bill was under 2k, which was nice for them. I installed the Bridge theme on Pantheon, did some initial theme setup, and then asked the client to take Read More >>

Vu Digital Web App

Team: Ben Buie | 7/7/15

This was definitely my favorite project so far. I loved the team, the technology, and the product. Plus, I got to design and develop everything on the front-end from scratch (besides the site header design). I setup an MVC architecture using Angular. I used the built-in ngRouter until I realized that uiRouter offered features that I needed Read More >>

SpaceNav Redesign/Redevelop

Ben Buie | 5/20/15

I’m no graphic designer, but I do have more of an eye for design than the typical developer and I do enjoy good UX/UI. So, when SpaceNav asked me to redesign and redevelop the front end of their web app I was definitely excited. The requirements included giving the app a “modern look and feel” and Read More >>

Searchlight UX/UI

Ben Buie | 4/27/15

I keep getting clients wanting more than just development. Searchlight came looking for help designing their website and (ultimately) their business. Our initial meetings were fun getting to know their vision and then I jumped into design. Because the core of their business is search, I began out of the norm by designing their search results Read More >>

Learning Laravel

Ben Buie | 4/10/15

I’ve been a huge fan of Laravel ever since we built an app for Crocs with it at Voltage. In 2014, some developers at Voltage wanted to join a Laravel meetup but found that there wasn’t one east of the Mississippi. So, they started one and I’ve been a part of it ever since. We Read More >>
