Full Stack Developer
Hey, I’m Jamie 😃
What's your story?
That was years ago!
How did it go?
Sure was! Well, during high school I made a lot of sites, but nothing really took off...
That sucks 😔
It did, but the more I coded, the more hooked I got, so I decided to study IT at college.
Followed by a bachelors degree at Plymouth University studying Web Application Development.
Nice, how'd it go?
I met some amazing people, polished the skills I had already, and learnt new ones!
For my work placement year I worked as a Java Developer at CGI. Where I managed the front-end development for the European Space Agency's Galileo project in a technology called Google Web Toolkit.
And your final year?
It quickly became clear it would be the perfect technology for my final year project!
What was it?
I built a real-time video/audio chat web application (similar to chatroulette) - using another cutting edge technology for the time called WebRTC.
It had all the bells and whistles; user/profile system, email integration, web sockets (Socket.IO), notifications, live text chat, reporting, even a banning/warning system.
Did it work?
Using Chrome or Firefox...
With WebRTC support flags turned on... 🙄 😂
That cutting edge!?
What happened next?
I graduated university and was awarded a First Class Honours degree 🎓
Nice! What have you been doing since then?
For the last 3 years I've been working as a Full Stack Developer for a London based startup called Campus Society.
While there I've been the sole developer of the platforms Angular web front-end.
Built multiple iterations of their distributed chat server using Node.JS, Express, MongoDB, Mongoose, Redis and Socket.IO.
And also played around with Django / Python. Deploying to Digital Ocean and AWS. As well as Continuous Integration with Git and GitLab.
Think I might be able to help you with something?
I'll be in touch shortly!
