I currenly working as a software engineer at Procore on our notification infrastructure, primarly in Rails. Previously, I worked as a front end engineer at Legacy.com for 2 years and focused mainly on React and Node. I have a BA in Philosophy from UC Santa Cruz and completed the Web Development Immersive program at General Assembly in Los Angeles.
Previously I worked as a paralegal for almost 10 years focused mostly on IP litigation. During my time as a paralegal I began using the command line as a way to automate some of my day-to-day tasks. The more I learned about coding generally, the more I enjoyed it. In March 2014, after a particularly brutal trial experience, I decided to move to Santa Barbara and start pursuing web development full time.
A guest blog post for MonkeyLearn about HashRobot, an app I built while at General Assembly. HashRobot is a social media assistant built with MonkeyLearn that helps Twitter users pick the right hashtags for their tweets. With HashRobot it’s easy to identify the most popular hashtags within a certain topic. Twitter users can add these hashtags to their tweets to have an edge in getting more views and increase visibility.
This paralegal program is in compliance with California Business and Professions Code 6450 through 6456 regulatory standards for paralegal education.
My focus at UCSC was on analytic philosophy including philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, and symbolic logic.
The client had already purchased a domain name but had not yet built a site or a hosting provider. He requested a clean, modern looking site. He provided me with a business card and asked me to match the font style and color. After a few round of reviews we had the site up and running within 2 weeks. I also created email addresses using the @danshaferlaw.com URL and walked the client through setting up his email on Outlook as well as his iPhone. This site was built with Bootstrap and as a result looks great on any device whether it be a large desktop, an iPad, or a smart phone.
The client already had a website that they had built in-house. They didn't have the internal resources to devote to having another site built, but they wanted something professional looking. I managed the transfer from their previous hosting company, and got them up and running with a professional looking site. Because they specialize in immigration law, I also set them up with a spanish mirror site. This site is optimized for mobile devices and works great on desktops and smartphones alike.
I'm currently working on Procore's notification infrastructure in Rails, including email and mobile push.
