Maintenance Development

For my first 3 months with GLG, I was strictly a maintenance developer. It was a good way to get familiar with all of GLG's repos. This is some of what I did:

  • CSS & JavaScript bug fixes
  • editing WordPress templates & settings
  • html emails
  • switching out copy
  • creating new pages

Some of those clients were:

Although I have moved into building projects myself, I still handle a large portion of my usual maintenance requests.

After learning and working in all of GLG's different projects and proving myself as a solid maintenance dev, they let me have my own project - how-to.t-mobile.com. See more about the project here.
