Web

NYCG

  • "NYCG" (New York City Galleries) a showcase of NYC artists, venues and events. Unfortunately, this website is no longer active as the cost of the domain (nyc.gallery) and upkeep wasn't worth the reward for Adam. He worked with J Squared Concept for design. The development stack consisted of Node.js, MongoDB, Express, Backbone.js, and Less. Adam created a separate REST service with the Restify module.
  • New York, Atlantic City, and San Diego "scenic.city" websites were built as a sort of playground for Adam. They run on Amazon EC2 under NGINX. Adam also used these sites as a playground for learning Flux - the application architecture Facebook uses for building client-side web applications.
