Web Developer

  • HTML/CSS, JavaScript and Ruby are my jams. Experience with Ruby on Rails, Sinatra, jQuery.

    Sole developer at a manufacturer in Santa Fe Springs, developing a machine usage tracking app which already is paying dividends. I aspire to make apps that look good to the user, and code that looks good to fellow developers.

    Interests: Efficiency, building things (whether with my 3d printer, my hands, or my keyboard), measuring the unmeasured.

  • myodotracker

    Patent pending project. Created because I noticed a need. Before this project, machine uptime was tracked using a bike odometer and time was logged at the end of the day. Python scripts run on Raspberry Pis to send data from machine to PHP API, which builds reports to crunch numbers regarding job costs, operator performance, and material used. I manage the project, acting as the go-between for the developers and management.
