But you probably already knew that since you went to my website. You can find me all over @thebrianemory. I am a web developer with giraffe-like qualities currently residing in Los Angeles, CA with my wife and our three kitties Thor, Tony, and Captain (that's right, she let me name them after Avengers). I enjoy bad movies, hard cider, and love pizza. I am a bit of a romantic, a goofball, and a gamer.
I would like to say I have been living the dream with a career as a web developer the past six months. However, personal stuff got in the way and that dream was shelved for a bit. I am now back to coding every day and look forward to a much better 2017.
Follow my journey on my blog, check out my current projects on GitHub, and connect with me on Twitter and LinkedIn. I look forward to hearing from you!
Flatcasts is my final Project for Flatiron School. I set out to solve a need for my fellow students. If a student were looking for a lecture, they would have to ask in our Slack channel, dig through past lessons, or search in a Google Doc. With Flatcasts, they can search for lectures and easily add new ones using only the YouTube URL. This was built with a Rails back-end API, an Angular front-end, and deployed to Heroku.
While building my Sinatra Project for Flatiron School, I had a small bit of trouble getting the app structure setup. There was not really anything that could get me off and running like how in Rails, you can always run
rails new app-name and be ready to go. Closest thing I found was a gem called Hazel. One of my instructors suggested making my own gem that mirrored the structure I had become accustom to using. With that, Corneal was born.
