About Me

Philadelphia based Front-End Web Developer. I love what I do and love the freedom that this career gives me. The ability to be creative & problem solve each and every day is one of those thrills that sometime cannot be explained. Addicted to learning new things and pushing the boundaries with new technology, I am a determined developer that doesn’t let a task of any size deter me. When i’m not in front of a computer, I enjoy taking my dog Cooper on hikes and playing as many sports as possible to stay active.

Skills

Magic Mirror

Magic Mirrors are a craze that I have been attached to lately. Who doesn’t get intrigued by them? I had been looking at so many different DIY projects to make them but always noticed one huge thing about them that people just didn’t really care about, interacting with it! So I figured I will just make my own. So I did, and wrote my own Spotify integration on it using the Spotify API.

I will get to the technical aspect and how I wrote the application below, I hope you find this as cool as I do, and if anyone has some feedback or ideas, I am always open to suggestions!

Hardware

  • Raspberry Pi Model 3B+
  • 32″ 1080P TV
  • 3/8″ Piece of clear coated plastic
  • HDMI Cable
  • Micro-USB (To power the Raspberry Pi)
  • 32″ Infrared Touch Frame
  • Custom wood frame to house the entire TV and mount the Raspberry Pi

Software

  • Spotify Web Playback SDK & Web API
    • Web Playback allows for the Raspberry Pi to show up as an option to play the music through it
    • Web API handles all of the authentication tokens as well as letting me use certain API endpoints such as the search functionality and using the play, pause, next, and previous controls
  • VueJS for the front-end
  • Node.js using Express on the server side so I can use the Web API
  • All of this is bundled into a production single page application in Vue (I am working on converting this into an Electron app)
