Hi!My name is Jake Broughton; I'm a solution-finder and full-stack software engineer, specializing in Rails, React, and Vue. I'm currently looking for the following:
I’m familiar with many different languages & frameworks, but nowadays these areas are where I excel (in no particular order):
A Rails app to help me visualize, write, and export articles or books as PDFs.
A video streaming website. The admin interface allows you to upload large videos, where they get transcoded into multiple qualities and formats using Amazon Elastic Transcoder, stored on S3, and finally delivered through Cloudfront to the end user.
The Public House of Art was the first big project I took on as a freelancer; I worked with them from the very beginning, and I built their entire online platform, as well as provided input on its design.
I built this website using Ruby on Rails, and Spree - the biggest, most supported ecommerce framework for Rails. Spree is rock-solid, and is totally customizable and extendable, which allowed me to create or modify features & functionality, in order to meet the client's specifications. These features included:
I built Kaanjo for a client in 2016, it consists of 2 parts: the JS plugin, and the Dashboard.
The plugin is for eCommerce websites and blogs, and it renders Facebook-style reaction icons (Like, Love, etc.).
The dashboard allows website owners to sign in, and provides an overview their collected data, see which pages (or products) are being reacted to, and of course which reactions their users are having. They can create multiple campaigns, each having different parameters, and custom end-user messages and icons (uploaded or chosen from a library of icons).
