#Angular2: from services to reactive effects with ngrx/effects http://ow.ly/VUid304BxlN
In a former article, I wrote an introduction for integrating ngrx/effects with angular 2 - a functional approach for reacting to a chain of events. Since then, based on this approach, I defined more side effects for several actions in my open source project, Echoes Player. It has really proven itself to be worthwhile in terms of…

Employment
  • iVision
    Principal Architect, 2014 - present
    As a principal architect I am focused on evangelizing, building, and meeting the Custom Application Development needs of iVision's clients. I will help define the core technology and business solution offerings to grow and mature the practice. I will work with teams across the organization to evolve the application delivery framework and cultivate external partnerships that drive overall strategy. I will live by iVision's core client engagement values for "white glove service" with daily focus on engineering excellence, hybrid IT, intelligent business and working smarter.
  • Wintellect, LLC
    Principal Consultant, 2014
    Jeremy left AirWatch to pursue his desire to reach more developers and become more involved with mentoring through public speaking, open source projects, and book authoring. Jeremy was hired by the internationally respected consulting firm Wintellect in 2009. He quickly advanced from Senior Consultant to Project Manager then Principal Consultant. At Wintellect he has provided solutions to Fortune 500 Companies, engaged in detailed architecture assessments, helped pilot exciting new technologies as they emerged, trained teams across the country, authored thousands of lines of code for enterprise web applications an managed teams from a single to a dozen developers. While working at Wintellect he authored three books (Designing Silverlight Business Applications, Building Windows 8 Apps with C# and XAML, and the soon-to-be released Windows Runtime by Example), coordinated several open source projects (an MVVM framework named Jounce and a Silverlight database engine called Sterling as well as a NuGet package for installing AngularJS components), and recorded several on-demand video training demonstrations. He has spoken every year at conferences around the United States from Microsoft’s World Partner Conference in Los Angeles to DevLink in Chattanooga. Jeremy was given Microsoft’s prestigious Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award in 2010, was named MVP of the year for his product group that first year, and has continued to receive that award for four years in row.
  • AirWatch
    Director IT, 2006 - 2009
    (WanderingWiFi) Jeremy was invited by former Manhattan Associates CEO Alan Dabbiere to partner with him and founder John Marshall build a new technology company. As the third employee, Jeremy was responsible for building AirWatch (then called Wandering WiFi) from a small WiFi provisioning operation to a nationally recognized provider of mobile enterprise management. He assembled his own desk on his first day at the office, helped take out the trash and locked the doors before sleeping in the sales office while in the process of moving his family back to Atlanta from Florida. He transitioned the company from aging Java technology to the .NET Framework, migrated them from MySQL to SQL 2005 (and later 2008) and scaled the application infrastructure. The original app required several servers to support hundreds of clients, compared to the revamped architecture that scaled to thousands of clients on a single server. Jeremy helped hire and train the first support team and then turned the process over to develop as a separate department. He configured and set up the first network, helped bring the company’s Exchange server online and built out the first data centers before hiring a data center manager to take over. He served as database architect for the database systems until he was able to hire a full-time SQL architect to grow a dedicated database team. He built a development team of a dozen developers spread across multiple projects working on Android, Blackberry, iPhone, and Microsoft technology stacks. Throughout this process he focused on creating repeatable scaled business processes that helped empower the company to become an international corporation with thousands of employees that was recently acquired by VMWare for $1.5 billion.
  • HolaDoctor
    Director IT, 2002 - 2004
    (Also known as Dr. Tango and Hispanicare). Jeremy was hired by HolaDoctor (then called Dr. Tango) CEO Roberto Estrada to direct their (then) fledgling IT department. The company had recently down-sized after a previous merge and was interested in Jeremy because of his passion for health and wellness (he was a Certified Fitness Trainer and Specialist in Performance Nutrition through the International Sports Sciences Association), his technology experience, and his ability to speak fluent Spanish. At HolaDoctor Jeremy worked directly with Roberto and EVP Dr. Dirk Schroeder and started by renegotiating the current phone system contracts to save the company thousands in monthly costs with a plan that included unlimited calls to the Central American countries where translation services were provided. He then negotiated reduced rates for their online service providers. He led the expansion of the local network infrastructure and extended the office network into new offices as the result of growth. He built and led a team of developers to migrate the company’s flagship product from a classic ASP application with data logic directly in the web pages to a multi-tier, multi-lingual, multi-tenant product ready to scale across white labeled customers and resellers. Jeremy served as architect and lead developer on the project, writing code for key modules and working shoulder-to-shoulder with the team (and sitting chair-by-chair with his team when they celebrated by watching the premiere of the Fellowship of the Ring).
  • Golden Summit Inc.
    CEO, 2004 - 2009
    (Natural Physiques and Lose Fat, Not Faith) Golden Summit Inc. was incorporated in 2004 to host Jeremy's online fitness properties. As CEO and founder, Jeremy built a content rich website and designed the graphics, layouts, articles, advertisements, fitness tools, and online payment processing for the sites. The NaturalPhysiques.com property ranked in the top percentile of all websites (per Alexa ranking with 3,000+ unique daily visitors) prior to its sale. Jeremy developed, produced, marketed, and sold digital, print, and media products ranging from CDs to books. The business generated residual income through sales of affiliate products, advertising, and other channels. Jeremy successfully drove traffic through organic searches by achieving top 10 search engine rankings for high demand terms including "lose fat," "fat loss," "weight loss podcast," to generate daily qualified leads through organic non-paid search queries. As a Certified Trainer, Specialist in Performance Nutrition and a life coach, Jeremy consulted clients to assist them with releasing fat. He augmented one-on-one coaching with telephone-based and live seminars to educate people about steps they can take to improve their health and lifestyle. His podcast in 2005 was one of the first in the fitness industry and featured healthy tips and tricks along with interviews of successful health coaches and success stories of individuals who transformed their lives. (see article at http://bit.ly/1pemp6v). Jeremy grew the business to six figures as the sole employee by it's third year. He shifted his focus to part-time when he accepted the offer to board AirWatch as its third employee and help launch its success in Atlanta.
  • Manhattan Associates
    Development Manager, 1997 - 2002
    Jeremy joined Manhattan Associates to work directly with co-founder and Vice President Ponnambalam Muthiah as one of the first 100 employees when they were a private company and programming specs were written on the backs of napkins. He quickly rose to the position of Development Manager over multiple teams that developed customer-driven features for their flagship PkMS product. Jeremy worked with the company through ISO-9000 certification and a subsequent IPO and internationalization while pioneering integration with conveyors, tilt-tray sortation systems, and warehouse robots across the U.S. and in the Benelux region overseas. Recognizing the importance of the Internet in the mid-90s, Jeremy transferred to a start-up product within the organization so he could focus on enterprise web development. Although he gave up his management role for the opportunity, he quickly proved his ability to learn and manage the new technology and was promoted to application manager within a few weeks. He led the application team to develop a system that integrated suppliers with manufacturers using a variety of communication protocols and database systems and provided a web-based UI built on a stack that included ADO.NET, XML, XSLT, and heavy JavaScript long before popular libraries were available.

Best tattoo experience. Appointments were on time. Shanna had our tattoos designed and tweaked them to exactly what we wanted. She was very efficient and it is by far one of the cleanest, clearest tattoos I've received. Clean facility, friendly staff.

This is our favorite Mexican spot to frequent. The food is always delicious. The fresh guacamole is awesome (we like it chunky). I like getting it with diced jalapenos on the side. We are vegan and they can always accommodate our requests from vegetable fajitas to bean enchiladas. Great food and very friendly staff. Best margarita in the state!

I always love a visit to Pike's Peak. It may be one of the most commercialized 14ers but it's still a stunning view. I never appreciated the amenities at the top more than after our Barr Trail hike. My daughter and I tackled this 13 mile hike in a day and it was amazing. One of my favorite (although most difficult) hikes of all time.
