MSDN forums UX refresh

    In 2013 I was brought onto a Microsoft team to aid in CSS fixes for a redesign “refresh” of the MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network) forums.

    The task involved converting designs to usable code on the current forums to give them a new look. This was a contract role that was originally supposed to last 3 months but kept getting extended as long as possible due to it being a great fit with the team.

    Role: UX developer on the DevDiv User Experience team under the Visual Studio umbrella of the company. Worked closely with engineers and designers to deliver quality web pages and proof of concept mock-ups and prototypes for MSDN, Visual Studio, TechNet, Windows Phone, Curah, and more Microsoft websites. Various CSS and HTML bug fixes as requested daily for the various Microsoft websites.

    Skills used: HTML, CSS, LESS, Sass, JavaScript, jQuery, Bootstrap, WordPress, Visual Studio, VSTS, Git, Microsoft Accessibility standards, Agile Development, and Scrum.
