John L Conway IV

Software Engineer


I write software and I love to learn new things. I can generally do anything I need to get products out the door, but I specialize in Web Development.


I am active in the Aviation Internet Media community as a Producer, Host, and Editor. I am currently involved with two shows: In The Pattern Podcast and Other Peoples Airplanes.

Software Development

By day, I write software. I'm currently mostly working with React but I have experience with development from Linux kernel drivers, dev ops, databases, all the way to the browser.

On the side, I've done some work on iOS applications and web development as Riled Up Development. I am available for contract work if the project is right, so drop me a line Contact.

Below are a list of publicly available projects that I have developed or have contributed to. I don't have a lot of publically available work due to the nature of my previous jobs, but this is a small taste of what I can do.


FlyOtto is a mobile and desktop web application built using Angular JS. I led the frontend team in building the application from early on in development through v1.

I had hands on experience writing much of the application code as well as leading a small team of frontend engineers when the project grew. The team is also remote, so I gained experience working with remote teams and tools to accomplish development.

The app is build using ES6, AngularJS 1.X, Angular Material Framework, and build system is built with Gulp.

Grind: Coffee Brewed Simply

Grind is an iOS app for helping make great coffee. It was built to help anyone from those who just got a French Press and are trying to figure it out to the pros at the Chemex.

Grind includes guided instructions for a couple of different brew methods as well as guided conversions to help you get the right amounts of coffee and water for the perfect cup.

Grind will be available soon in the iOS App Store for iPhone and Apple Watch. For more information check it out at


Perseverance Boat

Perseverance Boat is a Ruby on Rails site custom made for John's Father. The site allows friends and family to book trips on his father's boat by loading a calendar with all available dates marked.

It has since been retired and moved to a SquareSpace site, but the code (it's old!) still lives on GitHub.

The full source can be found on GitHub.
