About me

My name is Nick Jones, and I'm a software engineer with a strong background in principals of Object Oriented programming, and test driven development. I graduated from Colorado Mesa University with a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science, and a love of research and reading. I then attended Turing School of Software and Design where I built and reinforced my skills as a software developer.
I have spent the last 5 years working in IT. I managed multiple projects while keeping an eye on the bottom line and building relationships with key stakeholders. Currently, I am seeking roles as a software engineer or developer.

Welcome to Stay or Go, a disaster alert app built with React.js to be a Progressive Web App (PWA). This application is meant to take in natural disaster-related data from the API created by the back end team, and give the user an easily accessible and easily understood presentation of information in situations that may already be filled with fear and/or uncertainty. Upon opening the app, the google map will be loaded to user's location, and any disaster alerts for that location will be displayed on the page. The user can also enter their phone number to receive push notifications of disaster-related alerts in that area.
