Built a feature
I was brought in at the tail end of the project to build out two features:
  • Modal that pops up with donors' achievement(s) in their ActBlue Express account 
  • Functionality to share badge achievement(s) on Twitter & Facebook

I had never worked with social sharing before so meta tags, OpenGraph, etc. were all new to me. Pretty straightforward, but I can't say it was pleasant to QA crawlers' tag detection in production.

Taught TypeScript
Using Typescript
Our org is adopting Typescript and I contributed to the migration effort by merging changes to support Typescript in one of our major repos. 

Typescript support required configuration changes to our testing framework, bundler, CI, and linters. Since most of our team is new to Typescript, I also held a meeting to walk through a PR that converted a bunch of Javascript files and gave a basic rundown of Typescript development.

Built a feature
My first feature launch at my new company!

Really hit the ground running on this one. The org was just about to cross the finish line for the campaign season and this feature was the team's last.
