I was responsible for the entire development process while working at OutMatch Associates Inc. Originally, the client asked for the site to be built using the Shopify e-commerce platform. I spent some time studying the software, browsing through their free themes, and learning about their templating language Liquid, After gaining a firm grasp on the platform, I started building the storefront.
After a change up in their management however, they asked to move the site to the UltraCart platform. Starting all over, I took time studying their software, looking through theme styles, and learning the Velocity templating language. Soon after understanding their process, I began setting up the new myKore Essentials storefront.
The teams graphic designer was critical in providing images, photos, and laying out most aspects of the site. We collaborated on choosing a theme which would be used as the base framework of the site. With instructions from the client or fellow associates, the designer would create the look of the front, sales, and ebook page. I would take the designs and code them exactly, while also making them mobile friendly.

myKore Essentials uses UltraCart as its platform. They use Velocity as their templating language. The theme loads the jQuery v 1.11.1, jQuery UI, and Foundation extension libraries. The testimonial section on the info page uses bxSlider, a responsive jQuery content slider. The front-end uses Foundation as its framework. Another site asset is Google Fonts.
