NickolasStone

Web & Mobile Application Developer and SEO Specialist

I started 4+ years ago as an innovated IT Manager, Front End Developer (HTML/CSS/JS), then dug deep in the .NET namespace of development but still with a eye for design.

Originally specializing in C#, ASP.NET, MVC, Mobile, UX/UI, SQL, and overall web development, I really took fullstack Object Oriented JS, .NET, and MVC Frameworks are my bread and butter. (Angular 2, MVC.NET, EF/JSON/XML, APIs, Web Services, EmberJS, Backbone, and REACT stacks!)

I started a small technology business at a young age and was also a project manager for a large building corporation in KC before leaving for Chicago on a Collegiate baseball scholarship, when my baseball career ended unexpectedly, I came back to KC to get back into the exploding IT Business market that I'm so passionate about.

Today, you'll find that I've worked with Fortune 50 companies such as Verizon, worked on many different projects for the US Government and agencies.

- Education -

  • Judson University

    Studied Entrepreneurial Business

    2010-2011

    Went to Judson University in Chicago, IL to play NAIA D1 Collegiate Baseball before coming back into the tech world where I was before!

  • MCCKC - Longview

    Studied for an Associate in Business while I worked in technology

    Spring 2011 and take a summer class or two to finish it

    Used MCC to get my bearings, I had hoped for a temporary spot to go to school until I made other arrangements and until I could play baseball. My time at MCC consists of a semester and a handful of online classes but introduced me to Business Law, and Business Technology which is why this site is here today.

  • Centriq Training (MS GOLD PARTNER)

    Graduated with 2 Diplomas/Certs

    2014-2015

    Studied the .NET framework and became a .NET developer focusing on web applications before moving on to MVC and Mobile applications

  • Microsoft (Centriq Training)

    Microsoft Technical Associates

    2015

    Along with my diploma from Centriq training, a Microsoft Partner, I acquired an MTA (Microsoft Technical Associates Degree and Certification). I was taught the overall foundation of the .NET framework and overall web development which churned my mind more and more each day, each day getting a deeper understanding and a great desire to seek out more on my own, especially when it came to ASP.NET MVC, jQuery, jQuery Mobile, and overall mobile development.

    While there, we had a few projects with strict requirements that were given to us on a Monday, which was create a database for a ASP.NET Web Form Support Ticket Tracker application from scratch, with strict requirements and time contraits. Requirements for access amd app capabilites for certain roles and users, etc. It was an app that was data driven by SqlDataSources instead of Entity Framework or AJAX intentionally. My project turned out great but no with a plethora of time leftover...to say the least.
    However, when it came down to our MVC project which we only had 3 days to complete, I felt I was able to blow it out of the water because I was the only person in my class who had their personal site converted to MVC and had been playing with it for longer than the two weeks we spent on it VS. the 4-5 weeks spent on Web forms and some SQL. With Entity Framework, it obviously made the data easier to manage and easier to display. You just had to know Controllers, and Models, then add your Views. Although both project led to stressful weeks, they were the two best weeks at Centriq due to the real life application to development in business (a Ticket Support Program & an Student Administration Tool to managing students, courses, classes, and schedules through MVC). Those projects can be found in My Works or here as well (PROJECTS)

Develop3d KC

This MVC project is under construction so I can fix the bootstrap but it still 100% responsive on mobile devices but it doesn't have the floating 'develop3d-kc' header and the 3-dashed side pop mobile menu. Still in negotiations, the sites future may fall into other's hands, after a photography group showed heavy interest. I will likely fix and Bootstrap 3 the site, and change the photos to optimize and test for Retina Ready photographic imaging on an MVC site, as a test.
