BBQ Finder is a Module 3 solo project for the Front-End Engineering program at the Turing School of Software and Design. The app has been fully redesigned from its first iteration to demonstrate not only solid React knowledge but advanced UX/UI knowledge. State management was refactored to include React Hooks, and styling was refactored to incorporate advanced skills in CSS Grid layouts, SCSS, and animations. The target audience of this app is travelers who love BBQ. Using the Zomato.com public API, a user can search for BBQ restaurants across thousands of US cities. If they find one they would like to go to, they can favorite it and save it for later.

My areas of focus:

  • Building efficiently structured React components.
  • Async JS within React to connect to outside APIs
  • Demonstrating strong UI/UX and frontend design knowledge.

Placed 2nd in Turing Demo Competition.Dream Home is an application that provides first-time homebuyers with the financial awareness needed to start their home buying journey. Users can ask questions such as how much home they can afford and how long it would take them to reach their financial goal tailored to their current financial forecast.  Our final report provides nine unique savings plans that the user can select from. Each depends on how fast the user can achieve the original down payment that considers their financial forecast. This still delivers a path forward in monthly payments to realistically achieve this purchase.Dream Home is a capstone project built by 3 frontend and 3 backend students in mod 4 at the Turing School of Software and Design. It is meant to showcase our expertise in agile, collaborative development in a completely unguided application, as well as a demonstration of quick learning and implementation of new technologies.

My areas of focus:
- Learning new technical skills: TypeScript and React with Hooks.- Conceptualizing and constructing an app from scratch.- Agile process and proper git workflow with a combination frontend/backend team.- Team management through the process of building a complex and highly conceptual application.

Travel Tracker is an application completed for the Turing School of Software and Design Frontend Program. It emulates a travel app that keeps track of a user's past, current and future trips, and allows the user to select and submit new trips. Its purpose was to explore green-fielding a class-based application, create a full testing suite, and use asynchronous JS to retrieve data from and post to an external API. It utilizes JS skills learned during the course to create a UI and manipulate the DOM based on user interaction.

My areas of focus:
- Green-fielding a fully functional app.- Using JS skills and fundamentals to manipulate the DOM.- Requesting data from an external API.- Using Sass to create a clean UX.
