Steven Lambert

I'm a web developer and Computer Science graduate currently residing in Orem, Utah. I currently work at FamilySearch.org as a lead developer and accessibility expert. I have over 8 years of industry experience and am comfortable working in both small and large teams.

I love developing websites and applications that are clean, responsive, accessible, and adaptable. I strive to write code that is modular, reusable, maintainable, and efficient. I have worked on small, single purpose websites to large applications serving millions of users across multiple languages.

On the side, I enjoy making HTML5 games and writing game development articles for GameDevelopment.tuts+ or for my own blog.

Skills

FamilySearch

An international website dedicated to genealogy. The site enables users to search millions of genealogical records to find information about their ancestors and link these records to their own ancestral lines. I work on the application as a lead developer and accessibility expert.

On my own initiative, I worked with a team of designers to research, design, and develop a living style guide for the website as well as a JavaScript and Angular Component API. This has directly increased designer and developer efficiency as well as created a more consistent look and feel across the whole site.

Digsim

An online digital circuit simulator. I worked with one other developer to design, architect, and develop the application.

The application was created to replace proprietary software that was outdated, extremely difficult to use, and could only be run on certain computers. The replacement application needed to be easy to use, easy to understand, accessible from any computer, and give immediate feedback to the user.
