Diabetes education kiosk

TAMU Health Science Center, School of Rural Public Health & the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Application & CMS development – Designed a custom user interface for touchscreen kiosks used in diabetes education. Worked with Ben Liles, my business partner and SRPH, RWJF staff and faculty to build a system that was able to update content over the internet but for performance and reliability needs, it ran everything locally. We built a web based application that updated and cashed the entire web application using Google Gears and a local web server running on each kiosk.

On the business side, my role included maintaining our customer relationships, gathering requirements, outsourcing data entry and providing application and hardware support. I also developed much of the kiosk itself. My development role included the user interface/graphic design and css, js & xhtml implementation in Django templates. On the hardware side, I was tasked with building an OS configuration imaging, deployment and support for the kiosks.
