Officially released today! This site has some front-end flash done with Magento running the back end with a custom built template. For those who haven’t tried Magento yet and you’re still using OSCommerce or some other open source, php-based commerce app, STOP NOW! Magento, although still needs some work in some places, is great and the community is abundant and super helpful.
Anyhow, check it out here.
Started working on a new project from a great company in Seattle and within 3 days was able to get the concept up with the core od as classes written. This is a work in progress and I will enjoy developing this website.
Finally got to write some more Actionscript 3 classes and get this site close to completion. Been copllaboration with 2 other guys on this, one of them is suppose to finish off the calendar soon. Hope he hurries up because right now it is an eye soar compared to the rest of the site. I gave art direction for this site and execution was above average from the designer, but I had fun with the code
Finally finished a proof of concept (PoC) site for a very historic resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. Took idea to concept in about 2.5 months, with some examples of embedded flv, integration from flash to shadowbox. All in all, I’m pretty happy with the results. All the stakeholders loved it, along with the board members for the client and we closed the deal with them.
I tried to capture the environment of Kona, along with the richness in the land and history associated with the resort. Also, came up with a great concept to the “Learn” section, trying to innovate how a user can interactively view printed material along with video. Check it out and tell me what you think.
So I’ve finally got some ground work laid out for my flash based eCommerce solution. I’m having fun with the admin portion of it. I added post it notes for the user to leave notes to themselves and had it throw into a table the x/y cord’s of each item. Also created the ability to quickly add a new note and zoom the individual post it notes with a double click. Not a highly functional piece, but a real fun one from a user perspective. I created the user interface to include a menu selection with what I hope to have is a full eLearning video tutorial section. As I write this, I now need to re-code it all in Actionscript 3.0, so I might OpenSource this thing at some point.
Check it out if you want. I’ve stripped out most of the functionality to create a demo site, but you are welcome to take any of the ideas I had from the site. You can get a good idea as to how it works: http://jjborja.com/phyxius/admin/

Had some fun playing around with my little bro, teaching him how to use flash without a time line and got to learn how to do a carousel with flash in the process. Definitely going to implement what I learned during this process and hopefully he’ll be able to pick up flash and expand his repertoire. Only time will tell.
Completed 3 of 4 proof of concepts for a potential customer today. Had to do this last minute because I was informaed 2 days ago that the owner would be in town and that he is expecting a semi-funtional PoC. Quickly whipped out a flash based site with some minimal functionality. Also added an Employer Login admin site. Feel free to check it out using ‘jjborja’ as the username and ‘password’ for the password. Data is not connected to it so you won;t see anything, but at least you can see the concept.
Look forward to showing you what we did for the expo piece that will be running off a 60″ liquid plasma screen.
