H. Tucker Rosebrock

I'm a Boston-based full stack junior web developer.

I first became interested in programming during the pursuit of my graduate degree in fiction, and it was like a hundred million lightbulbs going off all at once.

I began by experimenting with ‘translating’ and animating stories of mine in HTML and CSS on my personal webpage. Through this work, I found an exhilarating sense of confidence and excitement, and I decided to take the plunge onto turning web development from a hobby into a career.

In August of 2016, I left my position in Sales Support and enrolled in General Assembly's full-time Web Development Immersive course to strengthen my existing skills. Since January 2017, I have been working with Shareaholic as Lead Customer Success Engineer and web developer. I am always eager to learn new skills and discover new opportunities!

I am comfortable and proficient in a number of languages, frameworks, and libraries...

My Portfolio




A tool built to promote the Share Count Recovery feature of Shareaholic's Pro plans, the purpose of this project was to allow visitors to enter a URL and see the retrieved share counts from the major social networks for both the HTTP and HTTPS version of the entered URL. Social networks store share count information on the URL pattern, and when this URL pattern changes, the social networks see the new pages as being completely separate from the old page - with a whole new set of shares. This page enables users to quickly and easily see if they have any 'hidden' or 'lost' shares on the HTTP or HTTPS variation of their URL.

I worked as the sole developer of this page, implementing the JavaScript/jQuery code to retrieve the share counts from the social network APIs via AJAX requests, as well as designing the appearance of the page using Sass and building it out as a Rails View. The project was a rewarding one, and has proven to be a valuable tool for marketing purposes, as well as strengthening my skills with utilizing JavaScript Promises and multiple AJAX requests to provide an optimial user experience.

Technologies Used:

Rails / HTML5 / Sass / jQuery

Built as both an educational and marketing tool, I worked as the sole developer and designer of the construction of this feature. The site is designed to act as a repository for educational resources around website marketing and blogging best practices. The "Bundles" are groups of articles surrounding a single topic or question. Clicking on any of the article links brings users to IFramed versions of the articles, where they can easily navigate through all articles in the bundle.

In addition to a creating the fully responsive design, I built the database structure for storing these resources and their relations to the Bundles. There is also internal backend support to allow for easy creation and management for all assets going forward.

Technologies used:

Rails/ActiveRecord, Ruby, MySQL, HTML5/Bootstrap, Sass/CSS, jQuery

Ember / Rails

My capstone project at General Assembly, 'Keepr' helps you keep track of everything you hear about and want to try. It was built over the course of six days using a custom built Rails API, and an Ember front-end. I had been frustrated by the lack of apps in the market that served this general purpose, and figured this would be a great opportunity to try my own hand at it. Over the course of the week, I went from knowing only the very basics of Ember to building out this full stack app. I'm eager to refactor some of the Ember components and structure as my skills improve, but this app, as is, is still beautifully functional and simple.

Technologies Used:

API built with: Rails, ActiveRecord, PostgreSQL

Client built with: Ember, Sass, Handlebars

Radio Static


A work-in-progress, 'Radio Static' is a fictional hypertextual story of a strange bar in the desert, and the people who find themselves lost there.

'Radio Static' began as the final thesis for my Masters in Fine Arts in Fiction. When I started the project, I knew next to nothing about coding, and the work has developed as my skillset has grown. Setting the limits on myself that I would not include any code I did not write or fully understand, 'Radio Static' was built entirely from raw HTML5 and CSS, with no assistance from frameworks.

In May 2016, I was given the opportunity to spend three weeks at the Banff Arts Centre in Banff, Alberta, doing a residency specifically on Digital Narratives. There, I began to redesign and update the site to include better UX and mobile functionality, as well as improving the overall story. 'Radio Static' is not complete, but I have come to see the revision and development process as integral to the work itself. Much like the landscape inhabited by the characters in the story, the site itself is constantly changing and growing.

Technologies Used:
