Hello, I'mCole Walker

About Me

I'm a Software Engineer based out of New Jersey. I currently work as a Front-End Developer for Hudson Integrated. I graduated Cum Laude from William Paterson University with a Bachelor's of Computer Science in May 2020. I'm skilled in both front-end and back-end development, I have extensive experience with Node.js, React, jQuery, SCSS, and web accessibility, and I've dabbled in Vue, (this site was built with Vue and Gridsome) AngularJS, Python, Go, Java, C++, SQL, and the list goes on. I'm a tinkerer, so I've played around with more technologies than would be reasonable to list. I live to learn and love to explore new and interesting things.

I'm looking for roles which will allow me to interact with both ends of the tech stack, and have me frequently solving complex problems with interesting solutions. Nothing feels more satisfying to me than building applications which required a lot of thought and effort.

Web ApplicationRandom Episode Picker

Cole.blog

A web app which picks an episode of a tv show for you. It connects to the Open Movie Database API using an express proxy server, (so I don't share my API credentials with the world) and returns some information about the episode chosen. I used AngularJS for this project, and streamed the entire coding process on my twitch channel. I built it because I always know what show I want to watch, but hate choosing the episode.

Mobile AppCountdown Timer

A countdown timer built in React Native. I actually designed this first, without any intention of programming it, but I received some requests to make it a real thing, so I did so. The goal of this application was to create a stylish way of seeing how much time there was until a certain date. I also wanted the user to be able to customize the interface to their heart's content, so there is a rich settings page with loads of goodies, including a gradient background picker, image background picker, and text color option.

I used React Native, Expo, and Redux to build this application.

WebsiteRandom Picker

Cole.blog

A PWA built with React that I built on stream. The idea of this application is simple, you can create a list of items that you'd like to randomly pick something from, and when you receive a random item, it'll remove that item from the list. I am aware that many applications exist that do this, but I found their UX to be lacking, so I built my own to fit my needs.
