xbox@e3 2011 and 2012
- April - 2011
One of my most memorable and proudest pieces of work, as a coder and gamer I was given the chance to help build the E3 single-page applications for Xbox.com EMEA.
As a gamer this piece of work was an absolute dream. As part of Electronic Entertainment Expo, I was tasked with the responsibility of building out the Xbox@E3 micro-sites in the EMEA markets for 2011 and 2012.
The projects themselves entailed lots of press coverage throughout the week providing official information on upcoming releases for Xbox 360. The 2011 build was a small Silverlight experience showcasing pictures from the show in LA and video coverage of the Xbox keynote using Microsoft's Smooth Streaming technologies.
The keynote video streaming was also a feature for 2012 with a live chat ongoing through the keynote. the chat being sourced from tweets and facebook comments.
The final piece of functionality was utilizing a voting mechanism to rally up excitement for the 2012 launch line-up.
