About me

As a certified surgical technologist, I facilitated sterile and effective surgical flow during thousands of surgeries. I was often tasked with coming up with immediate and creative solutions when surgical equipment and software malfunctioned, and I'm proud of my personal surgical career and what we were able to achieve for patients as a team.

My innate desire to learn new technologies and build products has pulled me from the medical field into the world of software development. I've fallen head over heels for programming, and I thoroughly enjoy the dopamine release derived from seeing those little green dots indicating that my code passes my tests. I learn new concepts quickly, and continually focus my efforts to become a proficient and empathetic team-oriented developer. I'm professionally trained in back-end software engineering; specializing in Ruby on Rails. I love Ruby and Rails, however I'm ready and excited to pick up new languages, frameworks, architectures and syntax.

I'm currently looking to join a team where I can actively absorb industry experience, learn from experienced developers and contribute all that I have to offer in our group endeavor to build awesome products and software. In summation, i'd like to share a quote I heard for the first time here at Turing:
"If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together."

Job house is a Job search application, that also shows users housing in the same area as their potential job. Houses returned are filtered assuming a 30% budget listed salary for a job and a 6% 30 year fixed mortgage. The Front-End is built with Ruby on Rails. Views are styled with a combination of custom CSS and bootstrap.

API endpoints are consumed from our Back-End Ruby on Rails application, which in turn consumes two 3rd party API endpoints for job data and housing data.

For the sake of learning and closely experiencing/examining the technical challenges associated with getting two applications to coordinate successfully, having two Rails applications makes sense. However practically speaking, we recognize this project may have made more sense as a monolith application, or alternatively a FE framework like react.

Whether Sweater is a Ruby on Rails Backend API based application. It follows restful convention and exposes endpoints for FE consumption. Current endpoints allow for a FE app to retrieve weather, and background images for a city. Register a user, to receive an API key, log in, and make a POST request to plan for road trips.
