h&k u.s. / day job
Hill & Knowlton U.S. was my day job, until summer 2003. I worked as an engineer and web applications developer.
We built the HnK US site while I was still an employee at extension11 (r.i.p.). It consitutes the earliest public prototype of the CoHo PHP content aggregator, and runs from a MySQL database backend.
My primary responsibility with the site was the architecture and implementation of the display engine, which dynamically constructs each page in the site based on an hierarchical structure pulled from an XML document and a set of rules to determine which templates to use, which content chunks to display, and other variables. The end result is a sharp looking website, with total control of content handed over to the client.
