My name is Gerard O'Neill. I created my first website when I was ten years old in the fifth grade. Within two years, I grew tired of the limitations of GeoCities and picked up an HTML book. I am now a 21-year-old senior at Rutgers University—New Brunswick, studying computer science. There is honestly nothing that I enjoy more than building applications.
Currently working on the same type of stuff that I did during my internship, as well as working on the main products!
I built beautiful internal web applications and automated scripts that Thrillist and JackThreads developers (including myself) used to make their lives easier. I also wrote automated tests to make sure our websites and APIs didn't crap out on us, as well as anything else they needed from me!
I build web applications for researchers to help them do research.
Jack of all trades, master of web development. I handled anything that involved touching a computer, whether it was setting up email and payroll accounts or removing viruses. My main focus, however, was building websites and maintaining existing ones for the company. Most things I built were used as internal tools to help the company run more efficiently.
I turned designs into code, skinned WordPress, wrote a WordPress plugin, and Photoshopped to my heart's content.
A simple game where the player tries to guess the price of a product, which is randomly pulled from Etsy. After each guess, the game will tell you how correct your guess was!
Diverge from typical advertising by providing users with ads for nearby locations, rather than websites. Simply copy/paste the widget script onto your website and our context analysis takes care of the rest.
How do you get an A in your databases class? Just build a beautiful website that analyzes the accuracy of stock recommendations from a plethora of stock pick websites. This helps people gamble more successfully.
A Reddit-like approach to movie suggestions. Create "theatres" for movies, add movies to them, and others will vote the movies up and down based on how good they are and whether or not they belong in the theatre.
Not sure what do to in your area? Yelp asks you to filter too much, right? Everyone else just tells you where to eat, right? Just tell me how many people you're with and whether or not you want to eat. I'll tell you where to go.
What's trending, you ask? This app pulled trending content from numerous websites, such as New York Times, Twitter, YouTube, and Reddit, and then let you view the content in an animated stream. If you found something interesting, you could hover over the stream to pause it.
This app allowed Facebook users to see what their wall looked like in the past. Interestingly enough, when my partner asked the Facebook evangelist if this was possible with the Facebook API, he said it wasn't. Shortly after we proved him wrong, the API changed and broke our application. Several months later, Timeline is announced. Coincidence...?
