AFL Mark of the Year

The Mark of the Year/Goal of the Year websites were built using the Yii Framework and allows visitors to view the top marks/goals of each round. Visitors can vote for their favourite and win prizes.

AFL Trade Tracker

AFL Trade Tracker

This project was created to populate the news feed and trade information within the trade page of the AFL site for the AFL trade period. The site was built in Yii and includes a CMS for the editors to add news items and trade details. The front-end allows users to filter content in various ways which reloads content via Ajax. My contributions to the site are highlighted in the accompanying image.

runQuery

This is a simple ‘Single File’ MySQL tool to query databases for sites that you don’t have ssh access to but it’s a lot easier and faster than installing phpMyAdmin. Source available on github.

James Boag’s Find A Shout

James Boag’s Find A Shout

The Find A Shout webapp was a small site put together for the James Boag’s Formula 1 promotion.

It uses the Less Framework to scale the website to fit desktop, tablets and smart phones in an adaptive way.

AFL Draft Tracker

AFL Draft Tracker

I updated the existing AFL Draft Tracker website for the 2011 AFL Draft. This website builds an XML file that each client reads every 10 seconds and populates the browser in real time with the draft picks as they happen. This clever design allows minimal data transfer for live updates so avoid overloading the server with requests.
