Roots is a site that allows for a user to keep family cookbooks in a digital format, adding recipes to multiple books and being able to view and navigate the books and recipes through a pleasant UI/UX.We designed the MVP with a Backend and Frontend team. We had to manage expectation versus time constraints and communicate the needs between both teams as new frameworks and libraries were used for learning purposes.

My areas of focus:
Building an application with a completely new framework and language. Elixir and PhoenixWorking with a full development team. Both frontend and backend members. Being organized as a team as well as maintaining good communicationLearning a new API structure. GraphQL

Grow Ops is a Rails Application for gardeners, new and experienced alike. What will you grow today? The idea behind this application is to give users a guide to set up and plan their own garden. The user will simply need to add the size of their garden, their zip code, and the estimated lighting, and our app will give a list of all the possible vegetables and how much they can plant within their garden.
