About Me

I'm Ed Plato, a Front End Developer who loves to create intuitive web applications and learn new technologies. I build with the help of my favorite language, Javascript.


My main area of expertise is front end development, however I have been expanding my skills in Node.js as well. My primary technologies of interest are Javascript, HTML/CSS, and React. I've also enjoyed building with jQuery, Bootstrap, NPM, Express.js, MongoDB, and Photoshop.


Think we should work together?

This MVC application was created to help narrow down movie choices by allowing the user to search movies, retrieve detailed information, provide IMDB links, and save movies to watch for later. It uses routed API's to search movie data, parse JSON results to a temporary movie pool(anonymously or logged in), and store client associated data. This RESTful application was built on MongoDB mLab for data storage, Express(with EJS), and Node.js.

Number Match

Number Match

Web Application
JavaScript / jQuery / Bootstrap / HTML / CSS

Number Match was created as a learning tool for my niece. I wanted to make a responsive and colorful app that she could play on various devices. An interesting aspect of creating this application was the need for a shuffle algorithm to cycle through remaining indexes in an array. Designed for Chrome browsers. Currently working on increased cross-browser support.
