What’s It All About
The first time you used a website, you knew that you couldn’t wait to
build your own. Your passion for emerging technologies, design trends
and usability advancements has driven you to create a multitude of
awesome web sites that push the limits of what a browser is capable of.
You dive into the issues of cross-browser compatibility while utilizing
the latest cutting-edge clientside scripting tools.
A Typical Day
You are on a cross-departmental feature team responsible for creating
an Army Management tool that will work both in-game as well as on the
community website. You sit down with your team to discuss the feature
and what the requirements will be before diving into a deeper discussion
with the web designer about how the user will need to interact with the
site. While waiting for art assets, you start prototyping the site in
HTML to get a feel for the user experience. Meanwhile, there have been a
few bugs reported on the community website that require your attention.
You hammer those out before submitting your prototype to your feature
team for feedback.
Who You Work With the Most
You spend most of your day with the rest of the web team and
community team creating features for in-game and the web. You also work
closely with the game designers to work out how a web feature might work
or what the ultimate player experience should be.
