March 28, 2014

What classes did you take?

HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, JQuery, PostgreSQL, Ruby on Rails, Heroku, Firebase, and AngularJS

What are you currently working on?

I am currently working on improving the apps that I built at General Assembly and going through tutorials and technical books. I will also be a front-end TA for General Assembly here in Atlanta.

What past projects have you worked on?
The last project I worked on was for American Public Radio, called #MarketplaceSmogCheck. I used HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, JQuery, and JSON as well as the Instagram API and the Google Maps API. I was the sole developer on this project.

It followed a story that was trying to take a neutral look at the air pollution in China, comparing it to the air pollution in the United States in the 1950s. Since the U.S. was able to work through the worst of the pollution, this story foretold that China could do the same, with strict regulations.

What are your best technical or creative skills?
Design, HTML5, and CSS3

What’s next on your list to learn?

Why the interest in startups?
They’re more open to developers from all backgrounds, and they take the best from the
corporate world and use it to help develop their culture and business.

Why start your technical career in Atlanta?
I recently moved here from Los Angeles and am excited to start a career in a place with a lot of young professionals.

What’s your ideal internship/job?

A front-end developer position or apprenticeship.

When can you start?
