In the spring and fall semesters of 2017, I worked for US Bank for a total of eight months. During this time I worked on a team that employed the agile methodology to help improve and maintain US Bank's business-banking web application, Singlepoint. This involved working with HTML and CSS on the frontend, and a J2EE based backend that interfaced with a DB2 (SQL) database. This experience was incredibly valuable for me not only in furthering my technical experience, but mainly for me to learn about best professional practices when working on a large scale project alongside dozens of other developers.Spring and Fall 2017
While working with Bridgeable, a small startup based in Cincinnati, my duty was to be a flexible and versatile front-end developer who would implement the website's mockups and designs, while also giving critical feedback and advice about what would be most valuable from a technical standpoint. My role as an intern was to begin development on the Bridgeable website (bridgeable.org) and to introduce GScript as a tool to more efficiently manage portions of Bridgeable's data.Summer 2017
My first work experiences under the co-op program here at the University of Cincinnati were as a Java Developer at Siemens PLM Software. As a part of this experience, I worked on a testing harness to be used by testers on the QA team to write automated tests. This project involved studying existing test cases and then using Cucumber to provide testers with a near-english language for writing tests. We then worked to allow these tests to be executed in a browser without user intervention using Selenium.Fall 2015 and Summer 2016
After following up on a professor's class announcement asking for help with a research project, a peer and I were given the task of building a utility in Python that would allow my professor to easily pull and study Github repositories. By iteratively learning about his use cases and implementing functionality, over the semester we were able to produce a program that would output a summary of the data corresponding to a specified set of commits. Additionally, this utility could optionallyy make a copy of the repo's filesystem at each commit in a specified directory.Spring 2016
Recently I have become very interested in Eclipse's che project. I see their approach of separating workspace configuration and tooling from code using Docker containers as incredibly powerful and useful. I really wanted to help out with this effort in some way so I have submitted a couple PRs that contribute to che's collection of recipes (recipes are used to define workspaces in che) and have also included this project here to spread the word!
