Sony Photo Jam Facebook App

Sony Mobile launched this Facebook app to promote the Xperia smartphone by featuring celebrity Instagrammers whose own photos would set the stage for a weekly contest where users could participate by posting images from their Instagram feeds and voting on each other's pictures to help decide the winner for that week.

Iris Worldwide teamed up with interactive agency Driftlab to build the Facebook app and I worked as freelance lead developer for Driftlab on this project. For this application, I developed all the front-end elements. This included building all HTML and CSS from Iris’s layered designs and programming JavaScript for the animated interactive elements and making the AJAX calls for storing registration submission data to a Rails based back-end. My role also included developing the server side PHP needed for accessing the Instagram API to pull users images into the app.
