Amanda Iaria
Full Stack Developer

Projects

I’ve worked on a wide variety of projects, ranging from full sites to landing pages, new layouts to plugins. Some I have worked on alone, while others are a collaboration involving not only myself but a small team with a dedicated designer.

Here are just some of the products I have worked on in the past couple of years. These are a select few that challenged me to find new solutions to complicated issues.

About

Amanda Iaria has been working on web projects for over ten years. They first started in high school making fan sites in 2000. Since then they has grown from their experiences and has gained knowledge beyond that of a hobbyist.

In 2010, they went back to college to get their Bachelor's Degree in Web Development from Champlain College, then graduated in 2013. A few months after they started working for HMC Advertising.

Their senior thesis was an online Data-based RPG Character Sheet that used their own CMS. The project allowed the user to create their own saveable Pathfinder™ character which could be edited and shared with others. It aspired to be more user friendly than other similar RPG Character Sheets that were in use. For now the project is offline, but they hopes in the future to revitalize it.

While working at HMC some of their first projects included 802Quits, OnCall for Vermont, and My Healthy VT. These ranged from full sites, to plugins and landing pages. Each had their own challenges to overcome. One such challenge was in the site called Parent Up. This site in particular had a huge amount of information which needed to be organized in such a manner as to not overwhelm the user.

In May of 2016 they were hired at Dealer.com, a local tech company that focuses on websites for dealerships, but that was only the tip of the iceberg. They joined an engineering team that is dedicated to Subaru of America's sites. (T2 (regional) - T3 (local dealership) ) We combine multiple APIs from Subaru and third-party companies in order to serve, not only the dealership, but also the public.

Amanda specializes as a Full Stack Developer, as they works with PHP, mySQL, and HTML. However, that doesn't mean they won't try learning new things. They has a rough familiarity in Ruby, and C#, and they are now learning Game Engines like Unity with C# and RPG Maker with Ruby.

Here are some of the few art pieces that I'm proud of.

All of my inprogress and finished pieces can be found on my Deviant Art (along with some other art links.)

My Time At Dealer

From 2016 to 2017 I worked on the dedicated scrum team for Subaru of America in Professional Services Engineering. We were tasked with inovating SOA dealer sites with their branding, while keeping it within the Dealer.com's platform. Projects ranged from the small, to continuous work that would span quarters. We strived to collaborate with the SOA teams to bring the latest from Subaru and from Dealer.com's technology breakthroughs. I learned a lot while I was there, from the principles of Agile, to more in depth software development.
