Hi, I'm Miriam. I have a background in art and design and live in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a software engineer, I'm part of teams that build and maintain web applications.
I particularly love working on the visual aspects of websites, the UI/UX, CSS, and responsive design. Sometimes I get a little crazy and put text over a (pure CSS) pattern. Salzer Design is my personal site. Below are some examples of my work.
www.northernlightstudio.com is investigating, practicing, and teaching historic painting and sculpture techniques. The site uses Angular.js and is responsive.
CJC members replaced the paper contact list that used to be distributed yearly to members of CJC. The Yahrzeits module keeps a database of deceased loved ones to be remembered on the anniversaries of their deaths. Reminders are emailed to members. I made this site entirely myself using RoR. Since the site's creation, I updated the versions of Ruby and Rails several times. This site is responsive, and has authentication based on password and the current status of the member. Yes, it's slow to load, heroku has to wake up - but it's free hosting.
Sarah Belchetz-Swenson is an artist with a large body of varied work. She wanted Belchetz-Swenson.com to have the feel of a traditional museum, thus communicating the timeless quality of the pieces. The site uses Angular.js and has a form for the artist add, delete, edit, and reorder her work.
"As an artist, I cannot imagine a better presentation of my work on-line than the web site that Miriam Salzer has designed and built for me.
Her intuitive understanding of my work and her responsiveness to my ideas, coupled with her imagination, taste and technical skills made it a real pleasure to work with her with from beginning to end."
I worked on Epocrates EHR (Electronic Health Records) application which was later bought by Kareo. This was part RoR with SASS and HAML, and part Java. I primarily worked on HMTL and CSS views. On the immunizations module, I acted as Front-End lead and designer extending the UI from the rest of the product and facilitated communication between the product manager and the backend engineers.
These are some screen shots of older sites no longer in existence (at least not these versions). I made the first websites the organizations had for TALKLine Family Support Center and Playwrights Project. The one I made for Playwrights Project was used for nine years - which is a long time for a website. The other two sites are for dance companies.
