G’Day!

Jason Snelders

I’m a business web application developer. I build stuff, try to be helpful, and solve business problems.

I’m also: dyslexic; travel the world with my wife; walk and cycle to work.

I love solving small problems that make a big difference.

 

I specialise in:

  • Debugging and hunting down problematic CSS and JavaScript.
  • Front-end web development.
  • Research, analysis and prototype development.
  • Solving and developing solutions for fixed-scope problems.
  • Application and process documentation.
  • Team support.

Interests:

  • Web Application Security (AppSec).
  • Software usability (UX).
  • Process automation and DevOps.

Core technologies I work with:

  • C#, ASP.NET, .NET Framework (no Core experience yet).
  • PHP, WordPress.
  • SQL
  • HTML
  • JavaScript
  • CSS

I’ve traditionally been a full-stack web application developer.

I’m also experienced with:

  • KnockoutJS
  • Angular 5 (and a smidge of 1.2)
  • A/B testing

 

Personal Projects

jsUplink (https://uplink.jsnelders.com/): A small JavaScript script with a backing Azure Function to lookup and replace ugly <a> links within pages.
Build primarily to service a new section to this site and release free for the world to use.
(First published 7 July 2018 with more features and enhancements to come, including favicon display. I’m also dogfooding it at https://connect.jsnelders.com/).

WhatsMyTime: Initial R&D prototype developed at https://stackblitz.com/edit/whatsmytime. Further development and a dedicated site with examples to come.

Connect (https://connect.jsnelders.com/): This is a project 3 years and a handful of attempts in the making. Connect is my attempt to solve a personal problem: web bookmarks, information collection and notes in one space. Think of it as Chome bookmarks meet OneNote. In the past, I build a web app from the ground up using ASP.NET/Bootstrap/Auth0/Azure Storage/Azure websites. This time: WordPress, a bit of JavaScript and 1 Azure Function. It’s also the reason and testbed for my jsUplink project.
(7 July 2018: I’ve just managed to get the site up and some initial pages down. It’s ugly, it’s raw, it’s got a long way to go – please bear with me.)

A really big snail!?

Struth! My folks know how to feed them.
