Brad Hubbard

My name is Brad Hubbard, Product Manager at DataSift

Since my career no longer includes active development, I try and keep my programming skills sharp with hobby projects. Below are a few:

  • PracticumFit : sole developer

    PracticumFit is a revolutionary new way for students to find and be matched to sites to fulfill graduate practicum requirements. Each year, students and sites rank order one another, and the system uses a variant of the Nobel Prize-winning Gale-Shapley algorithm to optimally match students to open practicum positions with a greater than 90% eligible match ratio.

  • Push Poll : web + API developer

    PushPoll is an incredibly easy way to quickly ask a bunch of your friends a question and get an answer, summarized, and delivered right to you. The goal was to build a system for rapidly gathering discreet information from friends or colleagues.
    Rails3 + JQuery + OAuth2 + JSON + Bootstrap
  • Personal Site : CSS implementation

    Working with Arthur Lazaro from Fictiontech, created a responsive portfolio and resume website, intended to showcase my work. Arthur provided Photoshop/Illustrator components and overall art direction for the site.
    CSS3 + HTML
  • X10 Rails : sole developer

    An open-source web controller for X10 home automation components, designed for easy API-integration into mobile applications.

  • Tablekit.js Enhancements : contributor

    Combined two powerful Javascript/Prototype libraries into a single easy-to-use JS file and removed conflicts. Allows table elements to be resizable, sortable, and convert rows to clickable elements with simple class declarations.
  • Encounter Runner : principal developer

    A robust web-based data tracker for WOTC's Dungeons & Dragons 4th Edition. The system tracks player status, board position, and many other things to allow players to focus more on the game and less on the necessary minutia. Exposes API for companion Android app.
