IGNITE - Front End Developer
Wordpress CMS maintenance including plugins, page customization, layout design according to branding.
As front-end developer, I am responsible for implementing new designs, page templates, and updating plugins. I also design and coordinate our email campaigns using Mailchimp to communicate with our student subscribers on events, contests, and other relevant content to enhance their experience at Humber college.
Meeting AODA standards was a huge issue for the organization. As a large organization of more than 50 employees and working to represent 29,000 students in an inclusive environment, we had a deadline of January 2021 to comply to Level AA standards. Instead, we set our goal to meet them by January 2017.
I learned to check for font sizes, colour contrast, video captions, and even .gif content for screen readers. In late January, we pushed hard and delivered on our goal. We conducted user tests with Humber students with learning disabilities to come in and test our site with successful results.
