After helping out the team for March Madness, I found a new home within Turner Sports Interactive working with the team. This site also uses the Drupal CMS, based on PHP and the MySQL database. I worked with Drupal’s module and theme layers on such features as the Golf Pro user profiles and equipment lists. I also worked on the course location database, and was able to improve the performance of some of the database queries by an order of magnitude.

On the front-end, I helped implement new “super dropdown” menus, powered by Ajax to dynamically populate, and cached individually on the back-end for performance. This required coordinating PHP, JavaScript, and CSS work to achieve the desired functionality and appearance.
