Software Engineering

I'm a software engineer and am currently working on a weather app for Android.

Having started in web development, I developed and/or maintained various websites from 2004 to 2010 using HTML, CSS, Javascript, PHP, MySQL, Flash, and Actionscript 3. From 2008 to 2010, I also went back to school for a certificate in computer science (4.0 GPA!!!) and in 2011 ended up at USA Today as a senior mobile developer where I built a large portion of their flagship Android app which runs on phones, tablets, and Kindle Fire devices. Then in 2013 I joined Homesnap, a real estate technology startup where I lead a small development team who added to and maintained the company's Android app. After an admitedly short stay, I decided it was time to strike out on my own to see if I can start a small home business building simple and inovative apps! For now, take a look portfolio for a sample of projects I have been involved in, and stay tunned for the launch of my simple and powerful weather app!

As I am always interested in new and exciting projects and being involved in dedicated group efforts, please hit me up for any desires to collaborate by emailing me at shep@shepshapard.com.
