The Body Shop
Christmas seems to come around so quickly. One minute you are enjoying long summer days in the park and the next thing you know you are building Flash based shopping cart applications for Christmas promotions. Where does the time go?

Flash E-commerce

I spent a few days at Duke Interactive recently helping the team there put together a shopping cart for The Body Shop's Christmas Gift Finder.

The application had already been created using PureMVC, which I am a big fan of so I was able to get going really quickly. My task was to build the cart functionality and all the usual suspects were present; adding items, deleting items, cart totals etc. There are two versions of the product database driving the application one, for the US market and one for Europe. Once a customer was ready to move to the check out we collected all of the shopping cart details and seamlessly passed the data to the already established e-commerce system used by The Body Shop.

I really enjoyed my short time working at Duke Interactive, who have done some great digital work for people like Nissan, Levis and PlayStation. Everyone was super friendly and I felt very welcome there right from the start.
