  Description  
This Project allowed me to upgrade my MySQL skills significantly and learn bunch of useful things.

The Induction Panel allows an employer to assign an employee or a contractor a set of courses and tests to perform. Each inductee can complete them at his own convinient time. After successful completion a Certificate can be printed out. Each Certificate is by default valid for a period of twelve months.

  Features  

  • Two panels: Admin and User (different panels can be added if requested)
  • Each course can be delivered in a format of online Screens or a PDF file
  • A test can be set for each course
  • Many courses can be groupped under a Program and thus assigned to the User with one click only
  • Auto-reminders (via email) for assigned contractors who haven't yet started a course (after 14 days)
  • Expiring Certificate email auto-reminder (2 weeks prior expiration date)
  • jQuery search populating a query on the fly

  Description  
The IDEA of this project is to track the activity in the office mainly focused on the company-client relation such as: project schedules or client management, as well as a regular office routine such as time sheets or vacations.
Every aspect of an office activity is framed within this project.

This is definitely the biggest project I have been developing yet it is NOT even close to be as sophisticated as others, even smaller projects I have had built or had taken a part in its construction/development.

The Job System is a continuous project; every now and then -or when requested by a client- I modify it, add new features or update it with the newest web solutions available.

NOTE: Originally there was another, pararrel or sister, system created specifically for the Client, with limited views and actions (projects of his concern only). When logged in to the system the client would have been a part, in real time, of the office life, just like the regular in-house employees.

  Description  
This system allowed me to spread the wings, merging different skills of mine at one place at a time. This was what I was born to built { or at least I like to think it that way :) } - unique page for THE unique air carrier, Qantas.

This site is an internal, online system for Qantas V.I.P. Lounges located at the airports of Australia, Americas, Asia and Europe. Yeah, that covers the whole globe.

The purpose of it is to communicate between each lounges in order to send information about arriving VIP guests, so the Lounge is ready to welcome them with their favoured meals, drinks, books, papers etc. already prepared, while they're waiting for the flight or a connecting flight.

  Features  

  • jQuery search populating a VIP's name on the fly
  • Internal Email system
  • Auto-refresh (database connection) if the system stays idle for given amount of time, so the new arrivals are listed automatically

  Description  
A bigger and of course a better version of CBP California.

Pretty much same functions only taken to the higher level.

  Features  

  • A photoshop-like cropping has been added to the project for both big image and the thumb image allowing a better cropping, especially for the thumbnail image. As of now even the small portion of the source image can be cropped, as the opposite to the original idea where the thumb function had created equally downsized image, simply resized with the ratio. The thumb now can differ gravely from the source image.
  • Front-End's Language drop down menu for quick change of the language.

  Description  
So far 28 buidlings are using this system of mine - every job that is required by the building manager is being sent to the company of choice (or by default), also created within the system with the unique ID and the password.

There are four types of users altogether: super admin, building manager, level manager and company, each of those having an unique login and password, allowing them to see portions of the site, with super user having see every single thing and the building manager and company being limited to view just enough.

  Features  

  • Four panels operating on one core
  • Each company can be listed in various jobs, i.e. plumbing, security, electrical by use of simple a check box, and thus be assigned to a specific job type
  • When a new job is entered to the system, either by Department Manager or the Super User, the System automatically assigns it to a company that is registered for this type of job. If there are more than one company the Super User can select one of his/her choice. In both cases a "Confirmation Required" email is sent to the company
  • Jobs can be exported (in .csv format) based on their status: All, Pending, Closed etc.
  • Two separate legal permits are required by each company: Public Liability and Worker's Comp. I had programmed a Cron Job to check, on daily basis, if any of those two expires. If so, the auto-emails are being sent, 14, 7 and 3 days prior to the expiration date
  • Building Manager can send bulk emails to Dept. Managers, Companies or both with one click only

The site of local (Los Angeles) graphic designer.
