Both the ASDM Digital Library and the Astronomy Launchpad examples use PHP and MySQL on an Apache server. The ASDM Digital Library will demonstrate a professional database-driven website that implements many technologies, such as an AJAX autosuggest box and advanced search engine designs. The Astronomy Launchpad examples will demonstrate my ability to translate numeric data into celestial maps in multiple projections. I am able to draw on my years of advanced mathematics to transform, translate and warp coordinate systems as needed.
