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 >>

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 >>

Fjallraven Re-design

Ben Buie | 3/31/15

This project was basically complex theme hacking. I hate theme hacking because I have to deal with all the bugs/nuances of other people’s work without the benefit of being familiar with the whole codebase. It was fun to get a little more experience with Shopify. A couple challenges were getting the color thumbnails on the Read More >>

Selectors in JavaScript – IDs, Data Attributes, or Classes

Ben Buie | 3/20/15

I did a guest lecture Tuesday night at Ignition, a coding school run by Spark Boulder that prepares students for their first coding internship. It was fun and I learned a lot about how to improve lecturing abilities. I also got a lot of good questions and one question that I didn’t think I answered well Read More >>

Hewescraft

Ben Buie | 2/16/15

Site Link: Hewescraft.com Skills: Javascript, PHP, WordPress, Google Maps API, Responsive design I think I’ve said this before, but I love when I get a project that I code from the ground up. I like it for several reasons, the most significant of which is that I take pride in the cleanliness of my code. Read More >>

Brands @ Sherwin Williams Product Redesign

Ben Buie | 1/17/15

I’ve done several projects and many updates for Sherwin over the past year, but nothing that was significant until recently. This site is a beast. The client didn’t have us build the site originally but they’ve had us do all the updates (not good, I hate some people’s code). In addition, the site uses WordPress multi-site which Read More >>

Brunton Redesign

Ben Buie | 1/2/15

This was a re-skin of the existing site. Coding on shopify isn’t easy, particularly with version control, but we setup a repo in git and use Ruby to push to the Shopify api when a file changes. The feature I remember most about this project is the menu. One of the principles I code by Read More >>

ClearChoice Migration

Ben Buie | 12/4/14

ClearChoice.com was originally built in Drupal and their team decided to port it to WordPress for several strategic reasons. I was given access to the old site and a charge to re-create the whole thing, except the scheduler (which was ported over by Randy Lybert). This was a fun project because I tried to build Read More >>

Code Snippets

Ben Buie | 12/3/14

One of the things I’m really happy about my last year at Voltage is my focus on creating reusable snippets of code that can be used to quickly deploy features on client sites. I’ve made my repository of code_snippets publicly available so that anyone can take advantage of them. Note, these are not for beginners, Read More >>
