AIS-Antwerp is a WordPress-based main website and intranet. This is a large-scale project to be used daily by students and teachers as a communication tool for internal and external users. I created multiple custom tools and functionalities. For example, I set up a custom lightweight directory access protocol (LDAP) connection that communicates with the students' database and lets them access the intranet with their global login and password.

Private Flight Booking Tool
I've created a custom WordPress plugin connecting to an external GraphQL database that lists the available flights and pricing for a provided flight route. Multiple flight routes can be chosen. Data from the GraphQL database prefills the dropdown menus. I have also implemented dynamic search boxes. After the requested data gets returned, users can contact the private flight company to book their flights.

Multiple Custom Email Templates

I created multiple email templates with repeatable blocks for multiple companies. All the templates were tested using Litmus and different virtual machines in order to make them as consistent as possible. I mostly used Mailchimp, Campaign Monitor, and Oracle Eloqua.
