Q1 2016 – Q4 2018
Responsibilities: HTML CSS/SASS JS/jQuery PHP/MySQL AWS
Traditional wordpress site, with custom theme built by Madwell. I inherited the task of maintenance, bugfixes, new feature implementation during my time as an internal dev at the Simons Foundation.
Notable tasks: Migrating the site off WP Engine and onto AWS. Getting a team new to Agile to adopt a loosely SCRUM process. Shaving about .1 seconds from the pageload DB query duration with a 30% reduction in DB calls by converting some massive reqs to ajax calls when needed and replacing wp methods with cached vars where applicable.
