  • Working with Jekyll and POEditor to provide a way to seamlessly localize our front-end sites
  • Creating a client-side search to provide dynamic search results for our static sites
  • Creating a Handlebars templating framework to work with Redux in support of our users with legacy browsers

Everwondr is an events management network behind many of the Convention and Visitor Bureaus in North Carolina.

One notable achievement was implementing a way to easily incorporate our events into any of our partner sites regardless of technology stack.
