This was an app that allowed villains to find their forever arch enemy. It pulled all available heroes from an API and displayed them on page load with three random suggestions at the top. It allowed for dynamic filtering by name and power level. The user is able to click on any hero to display specific details and the ability to favorite that hero. There is a separate page dedicated to favorited heroes where one could go to view or remove them from being favorited. The app utilized continuous integration with Travis CI.

This app is similar to Rotten tomatoes. It pulls movie data from an API and displays them all on page load. The app allows for dynamic searching of all movies. If you see one you like you can click on it to see detailed information as well a trailer.

My Name is Dad is a fun app for dads who are struggling to come up with silly dad jokes. In this app we utilized Redux when pulling from an external API in order to randomly generate a dad joke on page load, be able to push a button to generate a new random dad joke or, on a new page, search for a dad joke by a specific term.
