NSDL: The National Science Digital Library
I started working with the various NSDL websites as a student assistant to NSDL's lead developer. Intially, I did minor work with database-driven forms and some PHP work.
After the lead developer left the group, I took over his duties. I converted the site from a GForge-based system to CodeIgnighter and used the framework, along with various libraries and templates to simplify development and create a more modular codebase. I also did a lot of interface development work, retrieving data from REST APIs and formatting it for display.
During my time at NSDL, I also did some theme development with Wordpress, some minor Wordpress module modification, and Drupal development including custom themes, custom modules, and configuration.
In July 2011, NSDL granted me a UCAR Special Recognition Award for redesigning NSDL.org to accommodate changes in the search service including the addition of annotations, facets, and interactive histograms.
