AMP API Component Development

The  Application Migration Program (AMP) API Component Development & Maintenance project represents a major effort at a leading networking company to provide greater consistency in the user experience across their .com applications through integrated framework templates, streamlined APIs, and design standards. The ECM Web Technology group, responsible for this company’s Web Standards on the Internet, engaged JWay to create standards-compliant front-end components for AMP. These components would need to match strict specifications, design and accessibility requirements. Backwards compatibility would need to be addressed for updated components and comprehensive implementation guides written for brand new components.

  • Analyze and modify existing .com components to run in AMP environment
  • Support issues raised by application owners in using AMP components
  • Provide implementation guidelines
  • Maintain and update the AMP sample application
  • Back-end development support to the AMP Development Team
