Mobile Optimization Project: LifeTechnologies.com

In the summer of 2014, I was contracted and assigned to develop the mobile experience for Life Technologies.

Partnered with Moovweb, we were able to generate mobile optimized workflows from high-traffic areas like Homepage, Cart/Checkout and PDP. Several mobile optimized workflows were developed fairly quickly and we successfully launched in all regions (English only) in January of this year.

Client and vendor teams were geographically split, yet worked in unison to accomplish this project at the expected go-live date. The desktop experience is transformed with Moovweb’s SDK and deployed to their cloud infrastructure. This allowed front-end development teams to start the project fairly quickly without too much reliance on back-end development support.

The next challenge relies heavily on building and maintaining the experience while integrating their tech stack w/in Thermo Fisher Scientific standards.

The Friendship Algorithm in JavaScript

I’m a big fan of The Big Bang Theory and I couldn’t resist playing around with Sheldon’s friendship algorithm. It’s pretty much one object represented as Sheldon guided by the module pattern (thanks to Addy Osmani).

I encourage you to fork this code and get some zen coding in. Since the logic is “safely” protected by Sheldon, you should be able to integrate any boilerplate of your choice for some fun interfaces. Also, feel free to refactor the logic when needed. It could always be better. That said, kudos to Wolowitz for plotting out the loop counter and escape.
