About me

Hello, my name is Beth and I'm a Front End Software Developer, with a passion for developing applications and collaborating with a team to deliver engaging products. I began my journey in tech 7.5 years ago. For the first 7 years I worked as a Software Quality Assurance Engineer. After 7 years and many successful product releases, I made the decision to continue my education and learn to code the products I was testing.

I have extensive experience in Web-based and Mobile applications, Agile methodology, E-Commerce platforms, and I have a strong understanding of usability and design. I can provide a unique perspective in ensuring that customer requirements are successfully and individually identified and addressed.

In my free time, I enjoy hanging with my family, walking my dog Jimmy, and spending time in nature. I'm an avid skier and enjoy being outdoors; on the beach or in the mountains.

This was a group CapStone project with a combined Front End and Back End team. For the first time at Turing, I was given the opportunity to work collaboratively in an agile workflow to build an application. The project demonstrates knowledge I've gained throughout Turing as well as exploring new technologies. The Front End and Back End team implemented graphQL for the first time and used CircleCi for continuous integration.

Welcome to Paw Paths! This is an app that allows you to browse a collection of hikes and parks that are dog friendly, search for a specific type, view 5 random hikes or parks in a carousel container, and view individual details of a path. It is a path tracking application which introduced me to Express, Knex, and PostgresQL as well as strengthening my understanding of React and Cypress; taking place over 9 days to complete. The learning goal was to implement a 'Stretch Technology', which my group chose to be backend, learning to build a database and create a table schema with seeded data. We were able to deploy our backend API on Heroku, connecting to the PostgresQL DB, and then fetch the data with the provided link on our frontend. In addition, we implemented a responsive design for mobile and tablet.

Welcome to Sour Apples! Here, I have built my first React app that allows you to browse a collection of movies, search for specific movies by title, and view individual details of a movie on a separate page. This was a movie tracking application introducing me to React and Cypress testing; taking place over 10 days to complete. Our learning goals were to implement React fundamentals, testing React components and asynchronous JS, refactoring and adding fetch calls, and creating a multi-page UX using Router.
