It’s a new project by Brett Statman, who recently left Monetate to become a UI/UX developer at Jenkintown-based Nuix. The site uses the Internet Archive’s API, as well as data from this Phish site, and packages it in a user-friendly interface.

Use JamStreams

Statman, 23, of Manayunk, built the site to practice his coding skills.

“The site utilizes HTML, CSS (LESS CSS pre-processor), JavaScript, NodeJS for the backend and REST API, AngularJS for the frontend of the application, and MongoDB for storage,” he wrote to us.

Since it launched last month, users have streamed more than 17,500 songs, Statman said.

The Temple grad also worked on GrowShare, a Temple civic hacking project that placed in the Google Places API Developer Challenge.
