‘Black Settlers of Alberta’ Capstone project

I collaborated with a team to develop the "Black Settlers of Alberta" website. Using WordPress, PHP, and Sass, we created a custom website to showcase the history and contributions of Black settlers in Alberta. The project involved extensive research into the history of Black settlers in Alberta, which informed the content and design of the website. We used wireframes to plan the layout and functionality of the site, ensuring it was user-friendly and visually appealing. Through this project, I improved my skills in web development, project management, and teamwork by delivering a successful and meaningful project.


  • Engaged in detailed discussions with the client to understand their goals and requirements for the website, which focused on the history and contributions of Black settlers in Alberta.
  • Created wireframes to visualize the website's layout and structure using Figma and incorporated elements that highlighted the significance of the topic.
  • Knowledge of jQuery to manipulate the DOM and add interactivity to a page.
  • Developed custom themes and plugins using PHP to extend the functionality of WordPress and tailor the website to the client's specific needs.
  • Utilized Sass for styling to efficiently manage and organize the website's CSS code.
  • Worked closely with the client throughout the project, providing regular updates and incorporating feedback to deliver a website that effectively showcased the history of Black settlers in Alberta.
