About The Project

The Polsky Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation advances the knowledge and practice of entrepreneurship and innovation through a broad range of activities, including academics, research, conferences, competitions, and global and community outreach. The Polsky Center is the foremost resource for University of Chicago students and alumni as they pursue entrepreneurial endeavors and private equity careers.

My Contribution

This was another SiteCore CMS site built at Chicago Booth. This project technically began as a Booth research center template that I was instructed to build, however, the Polsky Center was the only Chicago Booth Research Center to use this option. The site began as an HTML5 / CSS3 site with various JQuery plugins. It was then converted to ASP.Net master pages and converted into a SiteCore template. There is a minor amount of back-end ASP.Net involved with this site, however, my Team Leader, generally handles all of our ASP.Net code behind files.

Part of the design called for having a hidden main menu when on interior pages with a child pages instead of just showing a full menu. Below is the JQuery script I wrote to accomplish this.

jQuery.noConflict();
(function($){

  // INTERIOR PAGE SUBNAV SLIDER MENU
  $('.slider_menu').click(function() {
		
    // ANIMATES THE SLIDER MENU
    $('#toggle_subnav').animate({
      // opacity adjustment
      opacity: 1,
      // toggles the width of the UL menu 
      width: 'toggle', 
    }, {
      // animation speed
      duration: 'slow',
      // easing effect
      easing: 'swing' 
    });
		
    // EASING EFFECTS FOR SLIDER MENU LINKS
    $('#toggle_subnav a')
      // FADE IN 'START' POINT
      .animate({ opacity: 0 }, { duration: 'fast'})
      // FADE IN 'END' POINT
      .animate({ opacity: 1 }, { duration: 'slow'});
    });

})(jQuery);

The new Polsky center website is still being finalized and has not yet launched. You can see screenshots below of what the site will look like after launch. Once the link becomes available, I will update this page.
