The best deals on the internet
Project Description
Often described as the "Reddit for deals," Slickdeals is the top deal sharing community on the internet. The Slickdeals Price Tracker is a tool on the site that allows users to track items and receive notifications when the price drops. Just paste the URL of any items from the supported retailers, and that item's price will be tracked and checked against all other retailers who sell that same item to show you the current lowest price, all time lowest price, and a graph of the item's price history.

Contribution: Web Development Intern
I developed for Slickdeal's Price Tracker tool to alert users when a price drops on a tracked item across a variety of stores. I regularly performed maintenance on price scrapers for supported retailers to keep item information and prices updated. Aside from working on Price Tracker, I bugfixed issues from different areas of the website and integrated new features using PHP, SQL, Javascript, and jQuery while using HTML5 and CSS3 to convert designs into functional web pages.
