Michael Deitchman's Projects

  • Joan's Website

    • January 2010 to Present
    Team Members: Michael Deitchman

    This is a personal site that I created for my wife for her ultra-distance bicycling. I created all of the graphic elements and content for the site (except that Joan wrote the 'about me' page).

    I hand-coded the entire site using my knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and Wordpress in order to bring the site to life.

    The website is meant to showcase her racing accomplishments for her sponsors and friends and family to follow along.
