College 2015-2019

2019FBShipIt Upgrades for Facebook

FBShipIt is a tool developed by Facebook for copying commits between different repos (see the README for more)
During my second internship at Facebook my job was to completely redesign the configuration system used internally
to manage the configuration of over 100 projects that use FBShipIt at Facebook. The old system required an unpredictable
amount of time (4-48 hours) to update a FBShipIt config. The system I put in place, and then migrated all projects to, allows
config changes to be instant. I also upgraded the codebase to use modern Hack Standard Library types.

2019Aggie Map for TAMU GeoInnovation Center

The map assists students in finding buildings on campus and walking, biking, driving, or bus directions.
I joined the project as a paid Student Technician working on trip planning enhancements and code cleanup.
The frontend is written in TypeScript and Angular (the new one) using the ESRI ArcGIS API.
There is no backend, the frontend is deployed as static files on a Microsoft IIS server.
We also utilize a ArcGIS map and route server maintained by another department within Texas A&M University.

2018Batch Migrator for Facebook

This tool assists users migrate events in batches from an old internal tool to a newer, scalable internal tool.
Approximately 12,000 events will be migrated using the tool, which automatically clusters events based on similarity.
The backend is written in Hack (PHP) and using proprietary internal tools written at Facebook.
The frontend is written in Flow using the React framework and internal Facebook tools.

2017Radio Alarm System for Union Pacific Railroad

This system scans and collects status of a series of custom-built automated radio repeaters.
It provides mechanisms for automatically reporting alarm states and for visualizing the status of the system
The backend is written as a RESTful interface running on a Java Servlet running on Apache Tomcat
The frontend is written in AngularJS, TypeScript, and HTML/CSS.

2015-2019GroupMe Group Administration Utilities

This provides a series of tools built on top of the GroupMe Developer API.
It allows groups to be managed through a bot command interface.
Additionally, there is a web interface that provides an alternate interface to manage groups.
Written in Python using the Django framework and using PostgreSQL as a data store.
For interaction with the GroupMe API I developed an open source Python library called lowerpines

2015-2019JonJanzen.com

Besides the content you see here, there is also other services that I run for my own personal use.
The main system that is only available to me is a personal inventory system primarily designed to track my books.
Designed and written in Python using the Django framework, PostgreSQL, and Nginx.
Currently hosted through Linode on a Debian 9 instance.
