As part of a collaborative group project, I worked to build a fictitious e-commerce platform where both merchants and admins to the site can manage inventory and fulfill customer invoices. As a first experience working with APIs, this project consumed multiple GitHub REST API endpoints. Additionally, I was able to implement Advanced ActiveRecord in several user stories.

As a collaborative partner project in my introduction to Rails, I designed this aquarium themed web application using ActiveRecord methods and helpers. My project parter and I used paired programming to design one-to-many database schema using CRUD principles.

This final project for Mod 1 of the Back-End Engineering program is an independent project that encrypts and decrypts messages given via command line interface. I designed a cypher modeled after the classic Caesar Cypher using object-oriented programming, with a focus on test-driven development.
