About me

Hi, I'm Logan! I'm a software developer recently graduated from Turing School of Software & Design. Before Turing I was attending college as a Software Development major and have loved coding since I started. One thing I like about development is that a developer has a mindset to figure things out themselves, and the vast amount of resources on the internet makes that much easier and fun. Another reason I think software development is for me is because I find it a very natural way to think. I've always felt that I had a more logical approach to life which shows in my development. I found and loved software development on my own, but I have family who are also programmers. They encouraged me to pursue my dream which brought me to Turing and further solidified my desire to become a software developer on a tight-knit team.

Tools Used

Viewing Party is an api-focused app which allows for users to add friends, search movies, and create parties with friends.

My areas of focus:
My main focus in this app was to consume our first api within a project. The objectives were for the most part to learn the very fundamentals around apis and to actually implement one in a way that makes sense within an app.

Tools Used

My Solar Garden allows users to track the health of their gardens through light, temperature, and moisture sensors connected to RaspberryPis. A user can use these sensors to anticipate or react to inclement weather to keep their gardens safe whether indoors or outdoors. 

My areas of focus:
Worked with hardware to gather sensor readings from a garden and put them into the database. Then displayed those results as a chart with an option for a user to select which readings they would like based on how long ago those readings were.Utilized: - Python - Raspberry Pi - RoR - OAuth - Javascript
