Jeffrey is a software developer with over eight years of experience—comfortable with a myriad of tools and libraries (React 16, Redux, Redux-Saga, Vue/Vuex, TypeScript) and more than proficient with accessible HTML5, responsive CSS, and JavaScript on both the front and back end. Jeffrey is also handy with Node.js, NPM, Webpack, Babel, Express, Sass, and whatever else is needed to spin up a development environment, run tests, or deploy components.



Preferred Environment

Atom, Terminal, MacOS

The most amazing...

...thing I've developed was a quick React-Redux app NPM package that I then used to develop my personal website as well as, an SVG animation SPA.

Quick React Redux App
A minimal bootstrapper for developing a static React-Redux web application that can quickly be built for the web.

Unlike other tools, this utility is not particularly married to a technology stack; due to the fact, it creates a project with very few dependencies, it does not suffer slowdowns typical in more heavy-handed bootstrappers.

There is also no eject step required to deploy for the web, just running "NPM run build" generates all the needed files.

This project has been field-tested in a number of my projects.

Swab Animator
This project centers around an online web application to quickly create SVG animations in the browser.

It uses React and Redux to drive the UI and is architected in a declarative, event-sourced way that theoretically would allow for infinite undo or multi-user editing.

Avid MediaCentral | Cloud UX
I worked with a small team in the development of the player, sequence, and audio components for Avid MediaCentral | Cloud UX.

I had many other responsibilities revolving around the actual development, including QA, DevOps, UI design, and more.

Litify Referral Network
From the website:
"The Litify Referral Network is an all-in-one platform solution that allows law firms of all sizes to easily send, receive, and manage legal case referrals for FREE."

The front-end portion of this application is written in ReactJS with a small auxiliary Express server for serving mostly static content. My primary task was to clean up the front and back ends of this application for development and production.

I updated all of the npm dependencies (including updating to the latest versions of React and react-router) and refactored the build scripts and Express server to be as atomic and simple as possible. I also recreated a number of components, including a custom date picker and a brand new sign-up page and flow.

The application no longer has serious dependency vulnerabilities, is much leaner, and runs much faster.

Monadnock Congregational Church
This was a pet project where I migrated a basic server-side CMS website to a client-generated Nuxt and TailwindCSS site.

Noteworthy features are under the hood. The website can be updated and published with a single script, compiling the Vue.js templates and sending the files to the webserver via FTP with a custom node script. A small PHP script retrieves Google Calendar information.

Strata — Raven Black

I developed sophisticated live and historic radar detection software with an expert team of fellow developers.
My responsibilities were primarily on the Vue.js and TypeScript-heavy front end, but I also started to work on their to-be-published Hugo website.

Transplant Services — Health Data Movers
I worked with a small team of developers on the front end and back end of a web application that supported medical professionals in the corneal transplant industry through documentation of referrals, tissue recovery, and medical review. On the front end, I developed pages on React, Redux, and Material UI. On the back end, I modified and created services with Node.js, MySQL, Sequelize, WebSockets, and Twilio/SendGrid for sending notifications.
