About me

A software developer with a background in healthcare. I am taking skills of collaboration and quality communication from my time as a healthcare professional into my newfound journey as a software developer. I emphasize the determination to keep learning and growing every day as a significant part of what defines me. It is not just about becoming a better developer as time goes on; it is about meeting companies halfway and ensuring I do my part in advocating for my own learning and being responsible for the work needed to be put in to achieve growth as a developer.

I am a hard worker who strives to write programs and apps that achieve a high technical standard. I am very open and accepting of constructive criticism so long as the intent is there to make me a better developer and communicator. I am confident in my ability to use Ruby on Rails for backend development and other programs that use a similar framework. I am more than open to keep learning other programming languages that will help me gain a deeper understanding of backend development or learn new concepts of client-side development.

Throughout my journey so far, I have made relationships that will last a long time. This has given me a type of fulfillment that I strive for; one that pushes me to surround myself with lifelong learners while establishing good rapport/professional relationships with those I work with. I strive to be a part of something that is bigger than me and to push the ceiling of humanity even more upward through the development of the tech we use every day.

JobHouse is a job search application where users can save job listings displayed to them and shows house listings in the same state as the Job. Houses that are displayed to the user are filtered using a budget of 30% of the listed salary for a job and a 6% 30 year mortgage. Data for Jobs and Houses were used by consuming two external APIs, one for jobs info and one for houses info. The project exposes 7 different backend API endpoints that follow CRUD functionality for jobs and houses.

Sweater Weather is a backend API that aids in planning road trips and sends weather data for weather at the estimated time of arrival in JSON. This project integrates third-party APIs for weather, gps and imagery data for customizing a road trip app. This project exposes 5 different endpoints for user login (user is authenticated/authorized with an API key given to them by the app), weather data given a search param by the user, background images for cities, a user session on the app and an endpoint that details road trip data given 2 locations by a user.

Sad path functionality was successfully implemented. JSON responses were mainly hand rolled without the use of a serializer gem.

A program made using Ruby on Rails, Active Record, SQL and HTML. The program consumes the MovieDB API that provides endpoints for information that relates to movies. Users of the app can look up movies and details of those movies such as a summary, picture, reviews, ratings and cast members. Users can then log in and create and organize viewing parties for those movies. Users can also add/invite other users, that have accounts, to their viewing parties. Some stretch goals were to get the views/front end/client side features to look more professional. Did accomplish some of that but would have liked to work on that more.

A mock E-commerce API that exposes 11 different API endpoints. These endpoints represents basic CRUD functionality of merchants and their items. This was a solo project that used Ruby on Rails and HTML for functionality.

Stretch goals were to implement authentication and session/cookies features for logged in users. Will keep working on these things to hone my skills on these topics
