API Integration Related Projects

The following posts are all related to API Integration:


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 >>

Hookify Feature Addition

Ben Buie | 3/27/15

Corvida Software hired me to add a feature (tracer) to their Hookify app. The feature is pretty cool, it allows someone to quickly ping any endpoint on the web and test the responses. You can save these “traces” for later so you can ping at anytime. It also saves past responses. I quoted this project Read More >>

UpYourService Re-design

Ben Buie | 12/3/14

When I first got this project, I was hesitant. The goal was to port their old site (which was a mix of one Joomla install and several WordPress sites) into one consistent WordPress install; oh, and not lose money on the project. It turned out to be very difficult. One of the big learnings from Read More >>

Syncing Inventory

Ben Buie | 8/15/14

I almost forgot to write about this project. One of the hardest things to do in eCommerce is keep your product inventory synced with the warehouse, particularly if you have both eCommerce and physical stores. Fjallraven.us wanted to take their ability to the next level, so they asked us to build sync functionality between their Read More >>

Fjallraven Live Instagram Feed

Ben Buie | 4/3/14

I love it when a client asks for something that you don’t see every day. Fjallraven recently launched their flagship stores in Boulder and New York and they wanted to integrate their Instagram account with the event. They asked us to create a live feed where guests could tag their photos with #fjallravenUSA and have Read More >>

Polar

Ben Buie | 3/23/14

The best thing about this project was learning to pull an image stream from Instagram using a hashtag. This turned out to be easier than I thought it would. The only snag was getting the new Instagram videos to load and play correctly.

Mountain Matchmaker Facebook App

Ben Buie | 3/19/14

One of my favorite things about working at Voltage is the variety of projects I get to work on. One week it is a WordPress site, the next a Shopify theme, the next a landing page with API integration, and a while back (I’m a little behind) it was a Facebook page app called Mountain Read More >>

Voltage Payments App

Ben Buie | 1/1/14

It has been slow this January and with some down time Seth asked me to write an app that allows us to take recurring payments from both our clients and for our clients. The app turned out great. The real challenge was syncing data across our database and authorize.net. I had to architect a user Read More >>

HappyFreebie Site Development

Ben Buie | 5/16/13

Update: this site is now called goodsbee.com I did 90% of the development on the site.

Geckoboard Dashboard

Ben Buie | 5/16/13

In the spring of 2013, I did a Node.js project for a Boulder company called Ubooly. I pulled data from the Freshbooks and Flurry APIs and displayed for a pull API at GeckoBoards. I also built the cloud server from the ground up using Digital Ocean.
