bfac, LLC. (Buy From A Christian) started an e-commerce website that donates a tenth of their income to churches or non-profits. They have since expanded to other services, like business texting, unlimited free garage sale fundraisers, a free church directory and business directory. I am the company's Programming Director and periodically get to dig into some ColdFusion code.
Before I became a contractor for bfac, I was working pro bono, and my first major contribution was writing the front end code of this design from 2008. The developer before me was better at back end coding, so I was asked to see what I could do with the Photoshop mock up. A day later, said developer had a sizzling hot HTML file ready for deployment.
A drastic overhaul was performed in the Summer of 2010, and some 600+ files had to be updated to fit the new design. I was doing this pro bono at the time on top of my full time job, so the process took about four months to complete. One of the reasons it took so long was the creation of a new advertising system in ColdFusion that used geotargetting. Just when things were about to be wrapped up, we acquired bfac.com and the site needed to be re-branded. Hilarity ensued.
Before Buy From A Christian moved their texting service into a separate business entity, buyfromachristian.com and bfac.com were one and the same. The 2012 design was the last update where both domains used the same design.
A subsidiary of bfac, Texting Leader provides a means of providing bfac's business texting services for companies that may hesitate to work directly with a faith-based organization. A bare bones PHP site that I built in a few hours once the mock up was finalized.
