About me

George Kilmain

Hello, my name is George Kilmain. I'm a front-end developer interested in all things internet, namely HTML5 APIs, CSS3, JavaScript, Angular, and Ruby on Rails.

I taught myself how to code while I was working as a mortgage broker.

You can check out my Rails / JS projects on Github.

Other things of note: I'm an email development expert and I know my way around PHP, Wordpress, and Drupal.

A Football Project

I love all things football - NFL, College - and I thought it would be a good challenge to build a site which combined a mapping service (another interest) with football. This app is built with Ruby on Rails. The map plots 150 high schools in Massachusetts and you use sliders (jQuery UI) to filter map data. Its showing data from the 2012 season. It is hosted for free on Heroku. footballmapper.com.

Other Interests

Definitely chess. I've been playing for over 20 years and I'm active on chess.com. I love Fischer style chess because it negates openings and games become tactical very quickly.

Beer too. I like nice ales, especially IPA's from the brewers at Stone and Firestone.

Good food. I'm fortunate there are so many great dinning spots in my area. Recently, my wife and I went to Black Sheep Restaurant in Kendall. It was excellent!
