This semester I had the wonderful opportunity to work on a semester-long multimedia documentary website on the changes in Cuba due to the lifted embargo. I worked with a team of developers, as well as designers, reporters, and videographers to create this project, and during spring break I actually got to travel to Cuba for the project!
As a developer for the site, I worked on building the site, as well as creating interactive element’s to add to my specific story, Revolution on Wheels. I gained experience with the Google Docs based CMS that we built and implemented, as well as EJS, a templating language. I also learned how to use Git, GitHub, and version control to successfully work on a project with a team. Above all, I was blessed with the opportunity travel to another country and use my skills to create something truly amazing.
