RED FROG HTML, CSS, JAVASCRIPT & FLUTTER

LATEST NEWS

ABOUT

Red Frog Consulting, Inc. is a Toronto-based operation, and one-man-show, that specializes in the front end.

I have been using HTML, CSS, and JAVASCRIPT for well over a decade, though I am a big believer in modern tech like FLUTTER, NODE, REACTJS, and the modern environs that they demand.

Though many of my projects are solo stints, my communication skills are top notch, and I excel at being part of a team!

To discuss your Front End Needs, shoot me an email at matt@mattgarvin.com, and I will get back to you within 48 hours.


LATEST NEWS

I have been employed by Fluid Mobility since COVID began, working from home. As such, I have limited time for other work, and even less for my side projects.

My side projects include:

  1. At my current job I was introduced to FLUTTER and started working with it almost daily. I love it, and have made many small mobile apps over the past year.
  2. I have also been writing a ton of content for my vanity site, www.mattgarvin.com.
  3. I built the simple portfolio site which you are currently viewing, too, of course. Like my vanity site it uses HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript and a bunch of APIS (Google analytics, Facebook API, Twitter API, and some social sharing stuff).
  4. Designing a Note taking web app using HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript, which I am now converting to FLUTTER!
  5. Creating a website for http://askdrkenadams.com/, using modern HTML5, CSS3, and tying it to a Content Management System using PHP and MySQL. Hoping to launch some time in 2022.
  6. Designing a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure mobile game using REACTJS, which I am now converting to FLUTTER!
  7. Tweaking a small, mobile cryptocurrency tracking app using JAVASCRIPT, consuming XML and JSON endpoints. (This is just a personal pet project.)

All of my side projects have demos I can share in person.

Bell Canada

My last full time job, before Covid kicked in, had me doing HTML/CSS daily, and touching almost ever nook and cranny of the Bell Canada website.

Behind the scenes, I used an in-house CMS to facillitate my job, though many changes required hand coding, with a sprinkling of Javascript (which I loved!).

Ask Dr.Ken Adams

Set to launch early in 2022, this highly sophisticated, fully responsive, website is created in the mold of www.mercola.com and www.drhyman.com. It is an information resource for people interested in the latest science of diet and health.

Behind the scenes, it is tied to a CMS that allows regular staff to update content, including blogs and videos.

Forest of Fright

Red Frog is entering the mobile gaming market with their first choose your own adventure style game.

Based on "gamebook" designs from the 1980s, and loosely based on "Fighting Fantasy" games, "Forest of Fright" is a turn based text adventure game that lets you decide how the story unfolds.

These "gamebooks" are perfect for mobile devices because they do not require large screens or powerful CPUs, and can be played piecemeal, allowing you to take up where you left off, like reading a book.
