#justin jenkins dot net Justin Jenkins' personal site and résumé ...

I have used the Lithium ( Framework to create this site, while it's simple it shows using:


I've used MongoDB to store an object repersenting each job I've had, since mongodb uses objects I was able to store data in various types such as strings and arrays.

Here is an example document:

  "_id": ObjectId("568f0b72bac526ed28e91090"),
  "company": "Subsplash",
  "summary": "A mobile focused content delivery company. We grew the company from roughly 100 clients to over 3,000 and from 50,000 app downloads to over 15 million.",
  "highlights": [
    "Worked with the Product Team to develop thousands & power millions of iOS, Android, and Windows Phone apps",
    "Led the Web Team in the development of a web based dashboard for on-the-fly app creation and updating",
    "Collaborated with the Design Team to create an advanced Bootstrap hybrid UI Kit for the app dashboard",
    "Devised an app analytics system tracking tens of millions of app interactions a day using MongoDB",

    "tags": [
    "Rackspace Cloud",
"expanded_info": "Subsplash has developed a unique app creation platform for iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Apple TV.

View Elements

The MongoDB data is brought in and formatted/outputted into html via an element (a partial view) views/elements/templates/job.html.php


<?php foreach($jobs as $job) { ?>
	<?php echo $this->view()->render(array('element' => 'templates/job'), array('job' => $job)); ?>
<?php } ?>

View Element Source

<?php if($job->expanded_info) {?>
<div class="collapse" id="expanded_info_<?=strtolower($job->company);?>">

<?php } ?>


<blockquote class="blockquote">

<?php echo $this->view()->render(array('element' => 'tags'), array('tags' => (object) $job->tags)); ?>

<ul class="list-group">
	<?php foreach ($job->highlights as $highlight) { ?>
	<li class="list-group-item"><?php echo htmlspecialchars_decode($highlight);?></li>
	<?php } ?>

Stackoverflow API

I wanted to show my Stackoverflow profile information but was disapointed with the available "flair" from Stackoverflow, so I made my own!

My custom widget brings in my score, badge counts as well the tags I've been most active on ...

Code Example

The Stackoverflow Model method me() (source) brings back basic user data from the Stack Exchange API.

This method caches the result with memcache for 2 hours so that rate limits are not exceeded, and the page loads faster.

	public static function me() {

		if($cache = Cache::read('memcache', 'stackoverflow_me')) {
			return $cache;

		$service = new Service(array('scheme' => 'https', 'host' => '', 'timeout' => 2));

		// using `userid` instead of `me` so we don't need to auth
		$data = $service->get('/'.self::API_VERSION.'/users/'.self::USERID.'?key='.self::KEY.'&site=stackoverflow');

		$me = self::response_to_object($data)->items[0];

		Cache::write('memcache', 'stackoverflow_me', $me, '+2 hours');

		return $me;
