After six months drinking from the fire-hose of gSchool I have only just begun my programming career. I am seeking a collaborative, mentoring environment where my years of customer service and business management experience can add value to the company on top of my programming. I am looking forward to joining a team and have the ability to continue learning new languages and refining my craft. Atmosphere, camaraderie and the opportunity to work on varied projects is at the top of my list. I am confident that I will be a good fit and look forward to talking to you further.
What the Pho
An online commerce platform for a restaurant to facilitate online ordering and administration. This project was a collaboration with two other classmates built over the course of two weeks.
This project built upon a previous "dinner dash" app to add multi-tenancy and increase performance. The system was optimized to handle 10,000 restaurants, 200,000 menu items and 100,000 users while responding in a fraction of a second. This project was a collaboration with two other classmates over the course of three weeks.
A social media management tool for organizing tweet mentions and replies much like an email inbox. API calls to Twitter and Klout provide up to the minute feeds. We built an API and Gem, utilized a VPS, background workers and custom designed front end. This project was a collaboration with four other classmates over the course of three weeks.
