Projects & Portfolio
This is a small compilation of work that I've done using different technologies: from Web sites to tablet/phone apps, through jQuery plug-ins.
I collaborate with different teachers developing Web mini-apps and mini-games, so I decided to put many of them under one Web site so the students could have easy access to them.
It is fun to develop this site, not only I get to draw everything and test different styles, but I also get to program game-like activities that help people learn new languages (Spanish in particular), and at the same I can experiment with different technologies.
This was a project in collaboration with teachers from the Spanish department of different high schools in Round Rock ISD (Texas). It is a website for a Spanish Spelling Bee competition (thus the name)
If the collaboration continues, the site will be update to show results, previous competitions, new lists of words, etc.
This is a personal project that I developed in 2011 to mimic the service provided by Web sites such as bit.ly: users can type any URL in the textbox, and by clicking on "shrink" (or pressing the "enter" button), the URL will be shortened into a Kah!me URL that can be used online.
It uses borders to create a spotlight area that will highlight a specific element, displaying commentary text, and animating from one step to another using CSS transitions. It is highly customizable, works on desktop and mobile, and users can opt to use the default controls or create their own using the plugin API.
ImageCloud is a jQuery plug-in that creates an image gallery inspired by the Google's Doodle design for the Christmas holidays on 2010. The doodle consisted on a group of images and frames that, when placing the mouse over then, grew to their real size displaying the whole picture.
I started developing in late December 2010, completed in January 2011, and rebumped in 2014 after improving and cleaning the code (making it more robust and HTML5-friendly), and adding new functionalities that make it (even) more interesting than before.
