Who I Am

Developer. Speaker. Teacher.

I’m a Full-Stack Web Developer who is addicted to learning, stays up late building, and loves working with people.  I speak at community events, participate in Hackathons, and run a YouTube Channel called Learn Build Teach.

Tech Skills

I spent 4 years working in Mobile before finding my passion for Web Development.  I started from scratch in 2016 and am now a Lead Web Developer and Application Architect at FedEx.  At work,  I use Angular 4+ and Bootstrap on the front-end and Java and SpringBoot on the backend. 

For my personal projects,  I primarily work with the MEAN stack (Mongo, Express, Angular 4+, and Node).  I’ve also built several WordPress sites for clients and myself.  Along the way, tI’ve developed a true appreciation for design and am getting better each day.

Projects

Here’s a couple of my projects.  Contact me below if you want to learn more.

Speaking

I  began my speaking career as a Technical Evangelist at Microsoft and have loved it ever since.  I’ve spoken and mentored at events across the nation and am always looking for new opportunities.

Teaching

I’ve led workshops with custom content for students, startups, and professional developers across the country.  On top of that, I’ve served as a mentor, panelist, and guest lecturer.  I do all this because I love working with people and helping them learn new things.

Don’t Take My Word For It

“James is a supportive and zealous educator. He is constantly sculpting his skillset while hosting workshops, mentoring people of all ages, and leading curriculum initiatives in the ever-changing tech field. James develops and maintains strong relationships with numerous educational institutions and nonprofits. He takes initiative to stay current by attending major innovation events and establishing partnerships with startups.” Chinnell Davis

Program Manager, ScriptEd

I’ve worked on numerous projects with James: he’s worked with and guest-taught our advanced CS students, taught a week of coding camp, found us space at Microsoft for a hackathon, volunteered his time at our hackathons, and in general has just helped us move our CS program forward. Along the way I’ve found him professional to work with and just a good person — someone I’d love to work with more. I just wish he was still in the NYC area! Sean Dagony-Clark

Director of Teacher Training, Flatiron School

“James did a fantastic job teaching coding and game development to middle and high school students during our summer coding camps and in-school coding workshops.” Hedda Falcon

Lead Teacher, STEM Academy, Monsignor Edward Pace High School

I had the pleasure of collaborating with James on multiple joint educational programs including a game development workshop series and hackathon for underserved and diverse students in NYC. Not only is he generous with his time, resources, and relationships, but strives to translate what he knows into student friendly language that’s clear and easy to understand for all students. You’ll often find James working one-on-one with students checking for understanding, troubleshooting on the spot, and drumming up a shared enthusiasm for the topic. Jenn Noborikawa

Assistant Director of Programs, Marketing, and Operations, Code Interactive
