Hi, I’m Cameron. Since beginning my journey as a web applications development student 4 years ago, I’ve designed and coded dozens of beautifully simple websites for personal and business use. I prefer to keep learning, continue challenging myself, and do interesting things that matter. My passion and abundant energy fuels me in the pursuit of many interests, hobbies, studies and artistic endeavors. I’m a fast learner, able to pick up new skills and juggle different projects and roles with relative ease.

I’m a recent graduate, working as an Application Developer for UPS and as a volunteer Web Designer/Developer for Wilderness Louisville. I’m always open to new and exciting opportunities! Feel free to get in touch by any means of communication.

UPS (2020-Present)

Application Developer Co-Op

The team I work with is building an angular C#.NET web application known as Inside Ops. It is part of a bigger application known as the Transportation Management System. The goal of the project is to re-invent some of the old legacy applications that have been in the field for over 20 years. Our application, once deployed, will be used by all package centers and shipping facilities across the world.

My part in this project has been to help incorporate a third-party application into our own for the purpose of training new users. Through this process, I have created dozens of interactive step-by-step walkthroughs and trainings, implemented feedback and tracking to understand how helpful these trainings have been, as well as tracking to understand which parts of our app are being used the most. I have become so advanced on using this tool that I have been able to give close to a dozen presentations to other development teams on how they can use it and benefit from it.

Using my video editing skills, I have also had the opportunity to create a short promotional video for the application. Feedback was so positive that we are now looking into incorporating video into our interactive trainings, future presentations, and application demos.

Wilderness Louisville (2020-Present)

Wilderness Louisville Website Prototype

Senior Project

Along with my class at UofL, I have helped run a systems analysis on Wilderness Louisville’s website, as well as help come up with a new design. Wilderness Louisville is a non-profit based in Louisville, KY that manages Jefferson Memorial Forest as well as other parks around the Louisville area. They also manage the ECHO initiative (Louisville is Engaging Children Outdoors), which is a grant-funded outdoor education and recreation initiative that is focused on improving equitable access to the outdoors for Louisville youth and families. I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to help out with such a great organization.

Unfortunately, Wilderness Louisville has struggled maintaining an online presence over the last few years and has asked UofL for help. Over the Fall 2020 semester, my class has done some analysis on the website and been in constant communication with the organization as we came up with a new plan and design for the site. The Spring 2020 semester is when we will actually get to implement this plan.

Personally, I’ve been in close contact with Wilderness Louisville and plan to continue volunteering for them once the website is complete, to help them maintain it.

Soccer Stats

Terminal Project

This project deals with web APIs and pulling data from json and csv files. It uses a json file to find the top 10 soccer players based on their game results within the csv file. After gathering them, it then searches the internet for news stories about the players via the Microsoft Bing API. The program not only pulls and displays the data from Bing, but also rates the news stories based off the mood/tone of the text within the excerpt. Each result is shows by keying Enter.

Tower Defense Game

Terminal Project

With this project, I made a Tower Defense game. In it, I have created several different objects including a map, map location, point, path, levels, as well as a variety of towers and enemies known as invaders. The different towers and invaders all inherited from a generic tower object and invader object. The goal of the game is to have the towers destroy all invaders before the invader reaches the end of the path.

When the game starts, it creates a 8×3 map (can be changed within the code). The path calculates the length of the map so that it stretches the full length while uses a random generator to generate some randomness to the path along the way. Towers are placed on the map in specific locations (each type has rules as to how far from the path they can be placed) and invaders spawn on each level. Each type of invader and tower have specialized capabilities like Sniper Towers can shooter further and Shielded Invaders have extra health. Each time the game is played yields a different result.

Cameron Abell Portfolio Website

Designer | Developer

CameronAbell.com (cpabell.com) is the website you are currently on. This website was started in 2016 as a way to display my portfolio and to promote myself. I am currently using WordPress along with a plugin called Avada to create and run the site. I try to keep it updated along my career journey, however, school and work often keep me busy.

PUR3craft.com (2012-2013)

PUR3craft Website

Designer | Developer

PUR3craft.com was a website I made during the early days of Minecraft, when it first blew up. This was a static website made entirely in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. It’s purpose was to host my custom Minecraft mod-pack client and server. Here, people could come to learn about my mod-pack as well as download and try it out for themselves. Although it was short lived, this website was a blast to create from complete scratch. I ended up shutting it down sometime in 2013 when the Minecraft craze started to wear off.

PUR3PRO.com (2011-2014)

PUR3PRO Website

Designer | Developer

My second website, PUR3PRO.com, was built as a video gaming community for all my friends. It was powered by Invision Power Board and featured a CMS, forums, a video management tool (similar to YouTube), a live chat, as well as a tournaments tool (similar to Gamebattles.com).

The community grew to over 100 people and stayed pretty active. People could create accounts, add and chat with friends, create groups or clubs, make posts in the forums, upload videos, and even join and play in tournaments. This has been by far one of my favorite and most fun projects I’ve done. However, I was unable to balance school, work, and the website so I had to give it up. I officially shut it down before graduating high school in the Spring of 2014.

Emitition.com (2008-2011)

Emitition Studios Website

Designer | Developer

Emitition.com was a website I made using vBulletin for my very first YouTube channel, Emitition Studios. The website featured CMS and forums as well as a small download section where users could come, interact with content related to my YouTube channel, as well as download things mentioned in my videos. The website and YouTube channel focused on content related to video gaming and technology. My YouTube channel gradually shifted away from tech and more into gaming, where I eventually rebranded into PUR3PRO and went full into gaming. This led to the shut down of Emitition.com and to the start of my next major project, PUR3PRO.com.
