Summary: I have worked on a number of websites over the years however my most recent are explained below:
This project involves a team of seven individuals coming together to create a series of pre-recorded music shows which are set to be delivered over the internet on any given day. To achieve this goal a website has been created which allows members and non members to subscribe to a podcast and contact or blog thunderfam staff with any issues, comments, music requests or concerns they may have.
My role is to co-ordinate the team members and instruct them as to what each member is required to do, in order for the project to be a success.
Parallel to me designing the website I have to ensure the tasks that are set each week are executed properly by the team, such as the following:
1. The creation and maintenance of the MySQL database
2. The recording of shows
3. The editing of each show before it is broadcasted on the internet
4. The recording of jingles
5. General administration of website(updating of text, images and reply to customer emails)
6. The advertising, marketing and promotion of the website.
7. Creating mailshots (informing members by email of new shows and news)
Although this website was not the biggest project that I have worked on, it was definitely as important as any other, because I was set a week to complete and upload my website design, edit the video that was provided by the client and create a pdf education booklet, which was later printed and posted out to the relevant school by Keneish Dance.
This project was completed in a week but I regularly converse with Keneish Dance as they are so happy with the work that I completed that they trust me to update the website and edit the education brochure.
This project was an exciting, vibrant assignment that required me to deliver the client expectations of having a simple but colourful and professional website. This was achieved to much of the clients safisfaction.
This webste allows users the freedom to change the language of the site and allowed salsa teachers, advertisers and Spirit Salsa franchiees to create an account and their own homepage much like the popular social networks that are available today.
The website allows teachers to upload pictures, embed videos and inform students of class times and changes.
The website took six weeks to complete and Spirit Salsa were well and truly happy with the end results.
