Appboy

Appboy Summer 2012 Social Streams

Worked with CoffeeScript, Twitter-Bootstrap, less.js, and knockout.js to completely redesign a web page that mobile developers could use to determine engagement of twitter and facebook pages associated with their applications by tracking likes, reposts, tweets, and other user statistics. Added support for tracking an application's Facebook engagement on top of the already supported Twitter engagement and presented it to the user in a unified view. Implemented a lazy loader to minimize the number of calls to Twitter and Facebook and speed up the load time of the analytics page for tweets and Facebook posts.

Indigo Biosysterns

Indigo Biosysterns Summer 2011 Ascent Web

Developed a web application that automated the manipulation of data from diagnostic work (e.g. blood work), reducing the work lab technicians had to finish before their final analysis- Used Ruby and MongoDB to write the web services. Designed a linear time algorithm to replace an existing quadratic time algorithm for processing bio-fluid information (worst case time reduced from 60 mins to 5 mins). Created automated test suite for legacy code using Nunit and Specflow frameworks to refactor code and substantially reduce code base.

Implemented a revision of the client's medical billing software from VB6 to work in the Windows 7 environment and made it compatible with the .NET framework.

Refactored code base to create a new module dedicated to persistence allowing the system to be compatible with different databases.
