Software Developer

Hi, I'm Mike Davis and I write web applications that help people and are easy to use.


Usually that's in JavaScript, but always love trying something new.

Senior User Experience Developer

Qualcomm Life

At Qualcomm Life, I continued working on the HealthyCircles application moving it towards a SPA architecture. My projects included a dashboard for healthcare professionals to oversee groups of patients and see early warning signs, a workflow for patients to add, remove and manage devices associated with their account, and a dashboard of charts for patients and their care providers to view their historical vital information.

I continued presenting brownbags on Polyfills and Shims, and unit testing with Jasmine as well as mentored other developers on the new patterns and frameworks on the client side.

  • MVC4

UX Engineer III

HealthyCircles (Acquired by Qualcomm)

At HealthyCircles, I was charged with increasing the performance and usability of the application. By moving to a clientside Knockout based MVVM SPA and using ASP.Net Web API as a RESTful backend, we were able to increase performance and decrease the size of the dataset sent over the wire.

Since a large portion of our user base is using older browsers (IE8+), we used Modernizr along with various shims/polyfills to maintain browser compatibility.

Additionally, I conducted brownbags on MVC4, Bundling/Minification, and MVVM/PubSub (KnockoutJS)

  • C#
  • Jasmine
  • JavaScript
  • jQuery
  • Kendo UI
  • Knockout
  • Modernizr

As a member of the web team, I worked on a replacement for the online loan application using jQuery, Modernizr, Handlebars, HTML5 (Local Storage, Semantic Markup), ASP.NET MVC3, WCF and Microsoft CRM Dynamics. For testing we used QUnit, Moq and MSTest. We released every two weeks to a sample of users for feedback.
