Created a database of the top ten songs that were one hit wonders during certain decades using Express, postgreSQL, and Knex. This was a large learning curve for my teammates and I since we were font-end students with no experience or knowledge about the backend besides using Express.

This project was a a capstone project where front-end and back-end students finally came together to form a full-stack team. Both ends decided to explore GraphQL because of its' ability to tailor requests to the front-end's needs but also help deliver more intuitive APIs to users from a back-end perspective. This application allows you to find the spiciest places near you when you wanna feel some heat. Users can sign in and add dishes to review for restaurants and even add reviews to existing restaurant dishes.

This project was a group assignment for Turing School of Software and Design's Front End Module 2. We created a recipe website called What's Cookin'!. A user can look through a list of recipes and view its' details. In addition, they can favorite a recipe for future purposes and be notified what ingredients they need in order to make it. It was a long process since this entire application was built in vanilla JavaScript|HTML|CSS but I loved working with my teammates to make this application come to life. Learning how to make the different API data we were using connect to each other was a enjoyable experience.
