While participating in a cooperative education experience at Brand Logic, I had the opportunity to participate in the development of an online ‘brick campaign’ fundraiser for one of their clients. Partial requirements included a dynamic list of all the donors, with their associated level of donation and a personalized message, and the ability to search for a specific donor and print out a personalized certificate.
The project manager finalized a design, which was passed along to me and my supervisor, Ralph Whitbeck. I was given free-reign to develop a solution using the design requirements and the mockup images supplied. Since the client’s main site had been developed using ASP.NET 1.1 and C#, I had to learn these languages in order to incorporate the campaign site into the main site. With the guidance of my supervisor, I was able to implement a search function on the page, as well as using ASP.NET structure elements to construct the actual page using Microsoft Visual Studio 2003.
A print-specific CSS stylesheet was added to eliminate unnecessary information from being printed by a user. A randomly-assigned male or female photo was selected on loading of the page.
- ASP.NET 1.1
The site was launched in 2006 and is no longer available.
