Front End Developer | Photographer | Nice Guy
Welcome to ClintMilner.com. I am a US born, UK based Web Developer specializing in building Front End functionality for web sites and applications. I have worked in this field since 2008 and built web sites for light, medium, and heavy traffic sites, as well as greenfield software solutions.
My past experience has included working on small teams that have grown into large ones, as well as working independently on employer projects and freelance client work.
Currently, I am the Head of Software Development managing a small team of software developers building products in the Network Security space.
I also enjoy taking and editing photos. Landscapes, Nature, Time Lapse, Macro, Wide Angle, Long Exposure, and HDR photography combined with shutter speed experiments can be found on the memory cards of my Canon 60D or my iPhone 7.

This is just a sample of the work I have done over the years. If anything, it shows the evolution of my creativity, technical knowledge, & skill set through commercial, freelance, and for-fun works.
This is just a simple timer widget that I coded up as part of a code-quality test from a prospective employer. PSD slicing, HTML, CSS and jQuery were all done in under 5 hours. The UI is completely functional, but the actual timer countdown functionality was not required for this task. Feel free to look at the code.
Version 2 of ClintMilner.com - I gave myself the challenge to do a full redesign and build a theme for WordPress. I created a few different page templates, incorporated the WordPress 3.0 menu system, and some custom widgets that could be accessed from the Admin. Included a Portfolio section as well as a Services menu which gave prospective clients an idea of costs and timelines for the most common jobs.
The Randomator is an HTML5 web app which will let the user input team names, configure the size of the teams, and randomize the players for the outputed teams. The end product used Local Storage to store all the user data, but I was responsible for the design and front-end web development. All HTML, CSS, JS and Photoshop work is my own. This page has all aspects of the app working except for the randomize fucntion which was developed by a colleague. This wasn’t designed to be cross-browser, so it will probably break in < IE9, and to ensure fast page load times, the site was created CSS3 with a few CSS sprites. Some cool Google Web Fonts (Bevan and Open Sans) were used. Check it out.
This was my first attempt at converting the current time to a hex value. The background color of this window is basically the current time using the 24 hour clock. Since the (r)ed value doesn't go higher than 24, and the (g)reen & (b)lue values only reach a maximum of 60, the color are very dark and on the cool side of the spectrum. Not great for display.
Gotta rethink this one... Check out Time to RGBA
This site was a full, bespoke re-design, re-code, and re-launch of the Rebasoft corporate website. This is a smooth-scrolling, paralaxing, media-querying, Bootstrapping, Wordpressing site packed with custom widgets for Products, Team, Case Studies, and Twitter Feed. The Rebasoft branding is all SVG and really looks good on retina devices. All of this was done in 4 days I might add... Check it out!
This was a built-from-scratch website that started itself as a simple client-supplied logo. From there, I mocked up the home and secondary content pages in Photoshop. Mock-ups and changes were sent back and forth until the client was happy and then I hand coded a static site by hand into HTML/CSS/jQuery. The client required CMS functionality, so I created a custom theme in WordPress/PHP. This site features custom post types for the image slider, testimonials, and before & after gallery. Here's the original HTML site used for approvals before converting to WordPress.
This was my first homepage for ClintMilner.com. It was all on one page, and when you clicked the links, the content and background slid right or left for ~5000 pixels in a parallax fashion ( ...before it was cool! ). Lots of jQuery! All vector art done by me. It was even featured on the website 1 Page Love. Fonts provided by the Google Font Depository. View full view here
