Wrecking Ball Media

From February 2015 to February 2016 I was a contracting engineer at Wrecking Ball Media Group. As a part of this team I worked on a web based community platform for Adobe. The project utilized several different APIs from Adobe and other vendors to create a white labeled site for connecting and empowering creative youth.

Getting Started With Go

This is a talk I presented at the first Kansas Linux Fest in March 2015. I gave it again that month at my company’s internal roundtable and again for devICT that July.

cqlstore

In Go web development the Gorilla web toolkit is a very popular collection of libraries for common web tasks. The gorilla/sessions package provides an easy interface for using/storing users’ session data. There was no implementation for Cassandra DB so I created one.

httpmatchers

BDD in Go is made easier using the Ginkgo and Gomega packages. Gomega specifically provides a collection of matchers for asserting that results match expectations. When using these tools to test an API I was developing I noticed some common patterns appearing around the assertion of HTTP status codes. I created the github.com/jcbwlkr/httpmatchers package to simplify some of those patterns.
