December 2013 to present
I've been building out the admin functionality for the Double Union application and voting app, where prospective members apply to join Double Union and current members review and vote on said applications. We also manage dues and various other things through the app, and are working toward open sourcing it so that other cool feminist hacker/makerspaces can use it, too!
January 2012 to present
Bridge Troll is an open-source software project that has undergone three incarnations since its inception. I am responsible for its present incarnation because as someone who helps RailsBridge organizers, I want there to be software that makes organizing easy. I also want to know who keeps coming back, and to be able to look at big-picture data about student and volunteer attendance.
I'm handling the role of product owner and product manager on Bridge Troll — consulting with other organizers about features that would be important and working with code contributors to make sure what we want is feasible.
Dev Bootcamp Final Project, July 2013
I was the technical lead on a team of three for a week-long hackathon / crowning Dev Bootcamp project. We built Giftdriver, an app to streamline the Adopt-a-Family and donation gift-giving process for organizations supporting youth and families through the holiday season.
I made this website. Pretty good, right?
I highly recommend checking out my site archive. LillieChilen.com: the original is a piece of art.
I also made my mom, who is an artist and educator, a website as a Christmas present. We're still working on getting more of her oeuvre photographed and up on the site. Basically, I'm figuring out how to make things that aren't ugly and are maybe even fun.
As a gift for my dad, I built him a little calculator that uses the Bill James algorithm to determine if the lead is safe in a college basketball game. This was possibly the first time I used jQuery.
