  • HTML & CSS Wizardry
    • HTML5
    • Bootstrap
    • CSS | SCSS
  • PHP
  • JavaScript
    • Vanilla JavaScript skills a big plus
    • jQuery
  • AWS skills, Firebase
    • Optional, but helpful!

We’ll be using some of the following tooling:

  • Git | GitHub

 

You’ll work closely with the “Fair In the Clouds: A Virtual Event” website Technical Directors and UI Designer to roll out innovative new features to make the OCF Virtual Fair experience more amazing and intuitive for our Fair Family and guests from around the world. Some of the things we’ll be working on include:

  • A fully-featured website that serves video content, live schedule updates and accessibility features (primarily VoiceOver / Screen Readers)
    • We’ll lean on JS to perform realtime data pulls from Google Sheets docs so Fair Folk can make easy updates to the schedules
  • Creating an interface that displays artist/musician donation links, website/social links, and associated information
  • Novel two way integrations between the 2D website experience and the m8rix (3D Fair Experience running on a heavily customized Mozilla Hubs server)
  • Other projects TBD as time allows. They’ll be fun and interesting because this is Fair, after all and we all like fun.

 

Time commitment

  • Availability for 1-5+ hours a week from April 2021 through July 2021 with more time spent in June as we finalize features. Just like pre-Fair, we’ll be testing and fine tuning all the way up to the days of the event. Hopefully most of the building will be done if we can get our collective acts together 😉
