Pantry Pilot is an innovative application designed to revolutionize the way we plan meals and discover new recipes. At its core, Pantry Pilot simplifies the culinary journey by allowing users to effortlessly search for recipes based on the ingredients they have on hand, particularly those nearing expiration. This feature not only helps in reducing food waste but also encourages users to experiment with different ingredients.

The app's functionality extends beyond just ingredient-based searches. It offers advanced filters catering to various diets and food sensitivities, making it an inclusive tool for all culinary enthusiasts, regardless of dietary preferences or restrictions.

But Pantry Pilot’s capabilities don’t end there. It employs a service-oriented architecture, with a Rails front end supported by a robust Rails back end. This setup ensures a seamless and responsive user experience. One of the standout features of the app is its integration with Sidekiq and Redis, which allows for the efficient handling of background tasks like emailing recipes. This feature is particularly useful for sharing culinary discoveries with friends and family outside the app.

This application also harnesses the power of Amazon S3 for photo storage, enabling users to upload and showcase photos of their culinary creations. This not only adds a personal touch to the recipes but also inspires a community of users to share and celebrate their cooking achievements.

In essence, Pantry Pilot is more than just a recipe finder; it’s a culinary companion that adapts to individual needs and preferences, fostering a community of food lovers who can share, explore, and grow their cooking repertoire together.

For this project I was onboarded as a new team member. Having never worked in Python or Django, I prepared by learning the language on my own, and making some mini projects on my own before my start date. Due to both being prepared, and my teammates being willing to spend some time showing me aspects of the repos, I was able to contribute features within the first 24hrs of starting this new position.

My first contribution was consuming an external API for using the USDA local foods API. This data was consumed and formatted for our front end team to render locations on a map using Leaflet. I also provided robust testing for this API consumption.

This was a valuable experience in jumping onto a brownfield project, and simulated some aspects of jumping into a new role as a developer. I found learning a new language and framework exciting. My ability to rapidly contribute demonstrated that my experience as a developer was robust enough to jump into a new role as a professional.
