Over my many years as a web developer, I have created and accumulated many different side projects and open-source software projects. The highlights of my work is listed below, but it is nowhere near a complete or exhaustive list of my works.
Check out my GitHub profile if you want to see more.
Frisby.js – An API testing framework written in Node.js that uses Jest as the test runner. Frisby.js hits real APIs (test/dev/sandbox hopefully!), and verifies the results with assertions for status codes, JSON structures and types, and more. The NPM package Gets over 10k downloads/week.
I co-founded the non-profit Techlahoma Foundation to help build and solidify the local tech community in the state of Oklahoma (where I currently live). I have served on the board in various positions since founding, including Treasurer and President.
In just a few short years, Techlahoma has grown to support 39 monthly technology groups across the state of Oklahoma along with 2 major annual conferences and a bunch of other community focused events like workshops, job fairs, and mixers.
ThunderPlains Developer Conference
I co-founded the ThunderPlains Developer Conference, which has run consecutively from 2013 to present. It is one of Techlahoma’s biggest fundraisers, and consistently sells around 250-300 tickets. ThunderPlains is also one of the region’s largest web/JS focused conferences.
By far the most popular open source project I have ever made (see phpdotenv on Packagist). Included by default in Laravel and many other frameworks and development kits
