As part of the team that developed the first version of their LMS, I was responsible for implementing front-end mock-ups into functioning user interfaces as well as help build the API that would support the system. This system was built using a combination of ColdFusion and JavaScript that made asynchronous calls to the API we built.

Originally scoped for about one thousand users, the online platform grew in popularity very quickly. Within 60 days we were serving more than twice the amount of users. In order to manage the scope of tasks, the team stuck to an Agile paradigm that really allowed everyone to work effectively.
