About me

I am an easy going, positive software engineer who specializes in front-end technologies. I hold a strong passion for community and teamwork/collaboration. Additionally, I am very eager to learn new technologies and have a compelling desire to expand my knowledge and grow as a software engineer. My past experience of working as a server, and kitchen lead, have helped me develop strong communication skills across a number of teams in fast-paced, high-stress environments, as well as the ability to be flexible and adapt to uncertain, or unexpected situations. Furthermore, my experience working as a product manufacturer and researcher at a supplement based, nutraceutical company advanced my problem-solving skills to think outside of the box, and enhanced the way I use my resources, such as knowing when to reach out for help or ask questions, and how to tackle and breakdown a seemly unmanageable task. With these tools from my past experiences, along with the tools I've learned at Turing School of Software and Design, I hope to prove my ability as not only a software engineer, but as someone who is dedicated to their team's learning and growth just as much as their own. As with time, I would like to expand my knowledge into back end technologies and become a full stack software engineer.

An app that allows users view category-specific charities that are local to the area of their choosing.

User's are able to:

  • Select a city of their choosing that's within the US.
  • Choose from a list of categories to find charities that focus on that specific topic.
  • View specific charities information based off their search.
  • Go to a specific charity's official website.

Main Focus

  • Build an app that's "bulletproof." The main emphasis for me was to cover all user's paths and ensure that all error handling was handled properly for a seamless UX. This includes a 404 page and features that aren't accessible without going to the main dashboard.
  • Create an app that reflects my own passion of community involvement and supporting others.

Testing
