IOS App In Ionic (Angular/Typescript)

Ben Buie | 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

Ben Buie | 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

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

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

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

Ben Buie | 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

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

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 >>

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 >>
