Twin Cities born & raised, I live and work in Minneapolis, MN. I'm currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Technical Writing, and IT Infrastructure at the University of Minnesota.
Here are a few things about me:
Online Manager, The Minnesota Daily
Technical debt reduction, stack improvements, and rebuilding the department following the graduation of most of the developers.
Undergraduate Web Developer, University of Minnesota - Carlson School of Management
I work on a number of interal projects in Angular.js, ASP.NET, and Python.
Backend Web Developer, The Minnesota Daily
Infrastructure improvements for the Daily following their tumultuous switch to Amazon Web Services in August 2013. In the end of January of 2014, we made the switch from the classic Apache mod_php stack, to an optimized NGINX/PHP-FPM stack.
The NGINX/PHP-FPM stack was able to enhance stability, decrease avg. app server response time from ~2000ms to ~700ms, decrease the avg. page load time from 20 seconds to 7 seconds, increase throughput, handle many more concurrent requests. It also allowed us to reduce operational costs by requiring fewer and leaner instances to handle double the traffic as the old stack.
My work is mainly focused on technical debt reduction, and stack improvements while also working on migration to a more scalable platform.
