About me

I'm a BE OOP software engineer. My previous experience was as a Licensed Veterinary Technician where team work and communication was imperative. As a developer I have experience in Ruby and Ruby on Rails. I take a TDD approach to coding to build complete and well tested applications. My other skills include but are not limited to RSpec, ActiveRecord, SQL, PostgreSQL, git and github. My interest are in video games, I've played them as long as I can remember. I would love to join a video game development studio as a software developer. I am currently learning to work with Unity and C# in my free time.

Collaborated with another developer to build a Ruby on rails app that allows users to browse for movies by popularity or search and create viewing parties for a specified movie, date and time. Users can register for an account and invite other users to a viewing party. Users can also see the details of the movie such as ratings, reviews, genres, and cast. Movies and their details are provided by consuming the The Movie database API.
