Front End Web Developer

About

Hi, I'm Robert Cooper, a front end web developer.

I graduated from Queen's University with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and I quite enjoyed the programming courses that were part of my degree. That is why i've ventured into web development.

In the summer of 2016, I ran my own web design business where I developed websites for small business owners. During my last year of University I became involved with as many web development initiatives as I could. Between the fall of 2016 up until my graduation in April of 2017, I took on the role of Director of Technology for a technology conference, worked as the lead web developer for a digital marketing company, and was involved as a member of the Engineering Society IT Team where we built an online student forum.

Recently, i've been working on improving my web development skills by working on open source projects as well as writing web development articles on Medium. I've also been volunteering my time at Sudo and Canada Learning Code workshops, which are aimed at teaching the general population programming skills.

Medium API Calls

An application that demonstrates how you get information related to Medium articles written different authors. Medium doesn't have formal API documentation for GET requests, so I wrote an article explaining how you can retrieve this data along this project code.
