Hartley is a generalist who focuses on metrics and results. In addition to full-stack web development, he also has experience in growth and marketing. He has several side projects of his own that bring in monthly income, so he knows what it takes to bring an idea from concept to spec to working software.

The most amazing...
...tech stack that I've worked on was Lua inside nginx, processing thousands of requests per second in an ad server.

  • Rooster App (Development)

    A service that sends you a morning text with the day's forecast. The app has hundreds of daily users and integrates with several APIs including Twilio, Google Geocoding, and Forecast.io

  • Web Starter (Development)

    A GitHub project I made for a friend who had taken some online coding classes but wasn't sure how to break into web development. It's a skeleton for a very basic Flask app that's heavily commented.

  • Open-source Pull Request (Development)

    A third-party API wrapper didn't implement all of the functionality that the API offered (allowing text-to-speech conversion in both .OGG and .MP3). So I forked the project, added support for feature, ran some tests and had my pull request merged into the project for others to use.
