NPR Presents

NPR Presents is an informational calendar and ticket purchase hub for NPR hosted live events. I worked closely with a graphic designer and multiple stakeholders to architect and develop the entire stack of this project. Wordpress and the Events Calendar plugin were used as a framework upon which a lightweight, custom, responsive theme was developed to provide the best possible user experience.

Tiny Desk Concert Contest

This is an NPR project whose scope was to create a landing page for accepting contest entries, logging, and reporting them. It also served as the information and social media hub for disseminating details related to the contest. My role with this project was in provisioning servers, building out the PHP / MySQL backend, and working with an Interactive Designer to implement the mocks.

Mock Tandy CoCo3 Interface

I originally made this to be the front page of my site, with big plans for writing an actual EXTENDED BASIC interpreter for it. Since it's been about 3 years and that has yet to flesh-out, I'm archiving it (for now?)

It's vanilla javascript and jquery. I apologize for nothing.

Tic Tac Toe

I wanted to flex my learning-muscles by building Tic Tac Toe using React / Redux. The code lives here: https://www.github.com/jdstafford/tic-tac-toe
