While working as Lead Developer/Programmer at Matmon, in June of 2016, I converted website mockups for Hounds Lounge Resort website into the functional website it is today. This is a fantastic looking website. I love the big images of pups, and the seemingly perfect color palette. Hounds Lounge was the first theme I built that utilized NPM for package management. Backstretch.js was used to lazy load images, and Gulp was used for automated SASS and JS compilation, concatenation, and minification. Using these new technologies, not only sped up my development process, but the overall speed and performance of the website greatly improved.
