To create something out of nothing is magic, and to leverage what other great minds have come up with is practical. I follow in their footsteps and strive to master more.
I serve as the primary frontend engineer Yahoo! 360plus, the leading blogging product in Vietnam targeted for teens and young adults.
I manage localization, market-specific enhancement, and maintenance on the product; the most recent work we've done is to revamp the user interface to a more unified, cohesive look as well as improve code for performance and maintenance.
Dan's WordPress-powered portfolio was designed by someone else, and implemented as a WordPress theme by myself. WordPress setup, custom plugins, and a customized theme were all that was needed to get the portfolio up and running.
Enthusiast is my downloadable, linkware script for fanlisting and collective management. What started as a simple hobby project, has grown into a popular script, becoming one of the most widely-used scripts in the community.
Flexible and feature-rich, the script can be used to run multiple listing websites (fanlistings, cliques, directories) across multiple domains and with multiple co-owners. Styling and customization is easy with templates and armed with your regular CSS, and upgrading across multiple listings is quickly done.
In addition to Enthusiast, SiteSkin allows for easy and lightweight website skinning, and LJ Magpie lets you quickly embed Livejournal posts into any website. Worth a special mention is The Icon Table Generator, for quickly organizing icons and avatars into table or liquid rows for posting in forums and blogs.
