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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

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 >>

Primus Camping

Ben Buie | 12/3/14

Catching up on some projects that I haven’t talked about yet… Primus was the first ecommerce site I built from the ground up on Shopify. It was a good learning experience. Overall, I like Shopify’s platform. It turned out to be easier than I thought it would be to customize the main and collection page 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.

Brunton Power Calculator App

Ben Buie | 3/20/14

This project got me out of my comfort zone a little bit. Another developer had done some of the initial design for this app and then it was handed off to me to re-write it for a significantly different design. Wading through the code was a little intimidating, but I figured it out and delivered Read More >>

MyNiceTie Redesign

Ben Buie | 7/14/13

One of my first entrepreneurial endeavors was MyNiceTie. When I got home from serving in Russia a friend, and business partner, gave me $7,000 to start what we thought would be a nationwide necktie company. I took the investment, flew to South Korea, and bought 2,000 ties. At that time, having a website wasn’t even Read More >>
