A Little About Me

My name is Coire Walker. I am a Front End Web Developer and Guitar Instructor living in Brooklyn, NY. Before taking an interest in the web three years ago I was a full-time professional musician. I still play in-between projects when I have time. I am a dedicated, creative individual, and love making great things with great people. Want to help?

About Me

More About Me / Not Just Coding

Where

Hurricane Ridge

I grew up in southern California. I moved to Washington State in high school--my family still lives there. After that I bounced between Phoenix and soCal, finally taking the plunge and trying New York City. Bravo! I miss the mountains and energy of the Pacific Northwest, and the beaches of my youth down south, but there's no place in the world more amazing than NYC!

When

I am fascinated by how things work. My interest in coding began three years ago from manually updating my Wordpress blog when the build-in editor wasn't rendering properly. Since then I kept a growing interest, building webpages for friends and planting seeds of greater goals. Now I have a good understanding of web technology and I'm looking for some exciting front end work that I can get behind. Is that you?

Audio

my music

I have been a musician since I was fifteen when I stumbled upon a broken guitar in my neighbor's trash bin. I've run the gamut of genres and bands over the years, and recently settled into a sort-of solo Post Rock sound, mixed with other stuff. You can find my music here.

“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.”
– Vincent Van Gogh


"The nature of the most subtle level of consciousness, which is pure and free from stains, is something possessed by all sentient beings. In this sense all living beings are equal."
– Dalai Lama


"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it."
– Jelaluddin Rumi


"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
– Mark Twain


"It's not your life, it's life. Life is bigger than you. Life isn't something that you possess, it's something that you take part in and you witness."

Current

I am a huge fan of live music, however discovering new artists can very difficult, even in New York City. That's why I created Current, a different kind of net radio. Current streams music by artists playing your neighborhood, within 24hrs! Built in Ruby on Rails, Current's event search results are filtered via the Jambase API using zipcode, radius, and start/end_date endpoints. Once the initial JSON is parsed, returned artists at venues within those search parameters are saved using ActiveRecord. The Soundcloud API selects songs by these artists, then creates a playlist for streaming using JavaScript.


Future updates will include the Google Maps API for venue location and directions, OAuth 2, Facebook event RSVP functionality, ability to like/pass tracks, and user profile analytics.


Current Radio does all the hard work for users, allowing listeners to discover new artists and artists to gain new fans, all housed within a simple, beautiful, fully responsive design!

Future iterations will have Google Maps integration and functionality allowing local shelters to upload and update pet and location information.
