About me

I am originally from southern Argentina but have lived in Colorado since 2000.  I have always had a creative streak and an interest in building systems and solutions, but I didn't discover coding until after becoming a coach. The connection between these two seemingly disparate disciplines became clear to me in 2020 at the World Rugby convention in Houston where I heard senior coaches talking about data analysis and using python coding to manage the data. This was the final push I needed. After some research, I joined Turing School of Software and Design's Back-End engineering program.  I graduated January 2021 - Cohort 2006

This is the backend engine that drives the Never Alone Application. Never Alone is an intuitive application used as an easy and non-intrusive way to check in on friends and family. Simply select a time to set up a check in with a loved one and when the due date for that check in arrives your loved one will simply respond to the request within a timeframe that was agreed upon by everyone involved. The "caretaker" will then receive a notification that everything is fine.

I have been interested in learning React and I decided to tackle my first project by building my own portfolio using it. To complete this I leaned on the documentation and using other online resources to tackle individual tasks.

The project is at the MVP stage right now, and I will be adding features and polish it little by little.

The biggest challenge with this project was using a completely new to me framework and building it solo. I think the biggest gain from this project has been my improved ability to learn and prioritize.

Currently I am completing a React course and learning how to test in this framework (outside npm start and the dev tools)
