After my projects were successfully finished at News Limited and I was still on the Working Holiday visa which allowed me to work for one employer for 6 months max I had to apply for a job at another company. So this project was the first project as a permanent Front End Developer at Visualjazz Isobar in Sydney. The project was already built up to 80% by my former Front End Lead Developer. He then was on vacation and I took over the project. The resulting tasks were mainly fixing bugs and finishing some minor templates.
The booking process is done via a third party module from impartmedia which gets its data via AXA. I personally don’t give this process a good ranking and won’t use it except when the client wants to use it. The possibilities for styling the gadget were limited. It is basically only possible to overwrite the given CSS styles with new CSS styles through using the important attribute on the styles. This is a very messy way of styling. Plus styling changes are restricted as to change of positions of elements. Sometimes hacks could be used as to use floats to switch the left and right positioning of elements. Otherwise the original positioning can be broken via absolute positioning but this is never a good solution in regards to responsiveness.
For this project it was agreed on making it adaptive rather than responsive. In the end the developer did not get specific wireframes or PSD designs for mobile versions, therefore the page can be used via pinch and pitching. Furthermore it adjusts to landscape and portrait view automatically.
