• Support for third-party mobile systems (Genwi, iCampusTimes)
• Custom RSS feeds
• Email feedback forms
• External blog integration

Using our own, SNWorks developed, content management system (CMS) Gryphon, we were able to build out their website fairly quickly and in the time as outlined in pre-production estimates.  

As a member of the SNWorks webteam, I was asked to carry out the front-end development of the site navigation:

• Drop down sub-level menu: design & interactivity
• Multimedia page: design & interactivity
• CSS [Bootstrap based using LESS]
• PHP [PHP using Twig]
• CMS [Gryphon]
