Hello! My Name is Albert.
I'm a Full-Stack Engineer bent on creating practical and beautiful apps. I have a big appetite for gettings lots of data and displaying it to the world.
Prior to GA, I was an Electrical Engineer with the US Army, working on wearable and vehicular acoustic sensors. After watching The Social Network, I became hooked to creating web applications through code.
"the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
- What I've Built So Far.. -
Entrepreneurship is living a few years of your
life like most people won't so that you can spend
the rest of your life like most people can't.
There are no traffic jams along the extra mile.
Sweat equity is the most valuable equity there is. Know your business and industry better than anyone else in the world. Love what you do or don't do it.
- My Tools for Creation -
The language of my server. Beautiful and semantic.
Ruby on Rails
My go-to backend framework for getting that data to the front-end.
I use JS to make that front-end do magical things.
These are just a few of the frameworks I've used to create my User Interfaces.
Manipulate that DOM.
The structure for making those sweet, sweet apps.
Make those apps look good.
Store that data. From SQL to NoSQL, whichever fits the purpose of the app.
I like to share my code with the world.
I keep track of my progress and stay on course. Currently I use Trello for developing against User Stories.
I deploy my apps to the cloud because it's faster.
Powerful language, especially for doing all those fancy scientific calculations.
Making those apps prettier to look at. Cool buttons and design templates galore.
