JULY 2014 - MAY 2015

Fanbookz is the world’s first football-only social network with over 200,000 monthly visits. I worked close to the start of the project building new features for the site, working with the designers to build designs into Twig templates and writing javascript components. I helped to code a Facebook-style inline comments system, the match predictor game, news, club and stats pages.

As the site grew more popular I worked on optimising the site by using techniques like icon fonts and sprite sheets using Gulp, and rendering HTML on the front-end by passing JSON data through Mustache templates using Hogan.js.

Lead front-end developer – 11 month contract
