A couple of CodeIgniter websites for my buddies

Ok, hopefully these will be the last PHP websites I’ll ever build.. Yes, I’m falling for Ruby – but only as a stop-gap on my way to Scala.

Most recently, a website for my good friend Dominique Gawlowski’s new company:

Griet Event and Artist Management

www.griet.co.za

And a promotional microsite for my buds at Fly On The Wall:

Fokofpolisiekar - Forgive them for they know not what they do

A little Papervision3D microsite

Super tight deadline on this one: I essentially had a weekend to put it together. But, it gave me a chance test out RobotLegs on a plain ActionScript project (no Flex), and I got to throw a “Skip Intro” in there!

Internetix 09 Microsite

http://www.is.co.za/Internetix/

Built with Flex Builder (as an Eclipse Plugin), Papervision3D, TweenLite and RobotLegs AS3.

Agency: Hello World Agency

NOTE: there is an issue with double breaks coming from the external XML content file (thanks to Windows and it’s retarded carriage return antics); I’ve updated the SWF to fix this, but it seems to be cached pretty hard on their server.

RobotLegs AS3: Introductory Screencast

RobotLegs AS3 is a Dependency Injection Driven MVCS Framework for Flash and Flex inspired by PureMVC.

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, but only got the chance to sit down and give it a bash this morning. It was pretty rushed, so I’ll probably redo these when I get a chance.

NOTE: If you don’t know PureMVC you should watch these first: PureMVC.TV

Update: The vids were pretty crap, so I removed them. Besides, they’re a bit dated now anyway (the framework’s API has tightened up quite a bit since this post). Have a look:
