Blake Campbell

Senior Developer, Vue Enthusiast, and Start-up Founder based out of Pittsburgh, PA

Currently, I'm working on a new business venture. A software company that evolved out of a partnership at BenefitMany working with one of our clients. Working towards automating onboarding agents to work with some of the largest Health Insurance Providers in the US.

What I Do:

JavaScript

Technical Talks

From the database to the frontend. I can do all of it. Though I'm most comfortable with VueJS / NuxtJS. I started with AngularJS 1.X then evolved to VueJS from that. I've been using VueJS daily since then. Some of my supplemental tools include: Storybook to maintain a component library and Cypress for End-to-End testing

Ruby on Rails

Although I prefer JavaScript, I do have some experience with Ruby on Rails. Integrating with different APIs to automate processes. SendGrid, Twilio, Harvest, Asana, and Experian are all APIs I've worked on with Rails.

I've given a few technical talks including "PDF generation in Rails" and "An overview of VueJS". Those were both in Reno NV to the local dev meetups. Moved to Pittsburgh, PA in March 2020 and looking forward to participating in the local dev meetups when things get closer to normal.

Blogging

I've been working more towards publishing at least two articles a month on my Dev.to My most popular being Readme for a Productive 2021. It's a hobby and a challenge for me to improve my communication skills.
