Asbury Theological Seminary
12 December 2005
First things first, I can’t take credit for the design. That’s the work of a group of people, mostly Jamie Leinauer and Jeremy Lucas. I can, however, take credit for some design elements, such as certain photos and the way some of the graphical elements are presented. In any event, since I originally wrote about my part in the Asbury Seminary website things have changed.
Originally I was brought onto the web team to help migrate content from the old website to the new. During that time I got really familiar with HTML and CSS with the help of both Jeremy and Nathan Smith . Some time later I began the task of converting the site into validated (if you’re into that sort of thing) XHTML 1.0 Strict with a front page that nearly validated under XHTML 1.0 Transitional (due to an iFrame for which I couldn’t replicate the functionality exactly).
In May of 2006 I was hired as the official Web Programmer and Multimedia Production person (Aka. Web master, web monkey, that guy up with the web or web dude…) In my new position I have started the effective use of PHP from within our current structure in both scripting and content delivery applications. I’m also on the task of brainstorming for future development, some of which will come to pass with the new restructure that happens “sometime soon”.
I’m looking forward to what I can bring to Asbury Seminary as one of the members of a web and multimedia development team. They’re continually pulling and stretching me to do my job more effectively and efficiently. Plus I’ve learned a ton about networking, security and Linux since I’ve taken this position. That’s a great bonus.
