About Jeremy

Jeremy Collins

Hi, I’m Jeremy. I’m a Software Engineer at Event Farm, and previously I was at Act-On. Professionally, I focus on developing attractive, fast, component-based progressive webapps. I also tinker with native mobile app development, and the blending in between (such as React Native). I’ve been doing this a few years now, after teaching myself web development. Previous to this, I worked technical support and wrote domuentation, and it was my undergrad years at college before that.

I live in Los Angeles with my wife and cat (our precious baby). We are fans of reading, watching historical dramas, and wandering the surprisingly walkable neighborhoods of LA.

Recent Completed Work

  • Event Farm Homepage
    • The official company website, built as a static HTML site with AngularJS. CakePHP back-end. My goal was to make it load fast without having to sacrifice graphical richness, and it rates highly on most performance and bandwidth usage benchmarks.
  • RoomCast
    • A one-pager (with modals) product site, built with AngularJS components for the interactive and animated elements, and optimized for quick performance. Built with webpack.
  • Bulletproof Bear
    • This website project consisted of creating a child-theme of Vice to pare down assets, improve performance on a rather heavy Javascript package, and provide a 2017-era flat-ish reskin on top of an existing CMS package
    • I volunteered myself to create a landing page able to take in an address and return voter district data. This leverages the Google Geolocation API and the OpenStates API
  • Plus what you may find on my Github account

About this page

This site is built with Jekyll, and hosted on a Digital Ocean Ubuntu droplet.

I realize I could have this site hosted for free on GitHub Pages, but using my Digital Ocean server is also a fun resource to have (for example, I also have it manage MX, dkim and SPF records to forward @jeremycollins.net email around via MailGun)
