Eventbrite Multi-Event Ticket Module

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 11:25

I was asked to add the ability to purchase Eventbrite tickets from a website using the Eventbrite ticket widget. The problem is that the customer had a number of events over the course of several months and I knew they would have several more over the years. The Eventbrite widget is complete, but you would need to copy the code for each event. This could be a little tedious, and it didn't seem as elegant having a ton of these ticket iframes loaded into one page.This seemed like an opportunity to create a simple program to automate everything.

GIT Exhibition

Sun, 05/07/2017 - 18:20

 "Versioning" is a pretty neat idea. I am not sure of the history of Subversion or Mercurial. But I know that GIT came about because Linus Torvalds..."needed" a version tool. So he wrote one. I find myself doing that all the time.I have a ton of little tools I write for this and that. I don't post even a portion of them. Certainly not the one I use regularly. I enjoy Open Source, but there is something to be said about security.

bezel mounting screw location BeeHive replacement industrial lcd monitor

Way back in the late 1990's or early 2000's I created some installation manuals for a line of industrial monitors called the BeeHive series.  I also created a logo, some other graphics and Flash animations. The worst thing about this early work is that I have lost so much of it. I would especially like to still have some of the Flash animations. 

I am pretty sure I still have the installation manuals in PDF form somewhere one of my old machines. I will simply have to dig.

TWIG Sub-Template Experiment

Mon, 04/24/2017 - 16:20

I wanted to be able to easily create a Content Type on the fly that would export photos using Lightbox.

Initially I just used a Module as a block. But that really seeming both impractical and overkill. So Instead I modified the templates in TWIG and the theme file. Now, I just need to create the Photo Library Content Type in 'Contents' and add the images I want to display.

Southern California Mountains Foundation

This website was designed by Nicole Beale. I built the markup, the SASS and wrote various modules and modified the Core PHP as was necessary. The CMS was Symfony Apostrophe 1.5. It was sort of an experiment in a way. The previous website was built in Symfony Apostrophe 1.5 and we didn't want to have to migrate the content and re-teach the employees on a whole new CMS. The problem was that Apostrophe was never designed for mobile websites.

Programming for the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC)

I have performed several tasks for RCTC over the last two years updating and creating content, not only for their main website, but for the various construction and project proposal websites as well. This article only highlights a few.

NOTE: Geographics company did not create the latest version of the RCTC main website. They still do a great deal of work for them, but for the website, they decided to go another way.
