I was the lead front-end developer for a number of Shopper Drug Mart websites including Beauty Boutique, DrugCoverage.ca and the Shoppers Drug Mart main store locator.
I was the lead front-end developer on a couple of global Shoppers DrugMart campaigns and associate sites. Working with Shoppers DrugMart gave me my first exposure to the Microsoft web platform.
The Shoppers DrugMart Store Locator is an application that helps users connect with the closest Shoppers DrugMart based on the selected filters the user fills out. The application functions on both desktop and the responsive web where the mobile version of the site is located on a unique mobile domain. I was the lead front-end developer on this project leading two junior front-end through the execution of the project. As with the Allstate Locator, the Shoppers DrugMart Locator is extended from the reusable Backbone.js application I wrote called yurt.js. Yurt.js is an internal product and library that I wrote at Trapeze Media for location-based projects. The idea behind it was to have a product that would be able to be demoed to clients, be easy to initially set up to get the basics map and location list functioning and that could be easily extended to adapt to the requirements of each new client.
