U.S. Voting Stats

U.S. Voting Stats

June 2019: A simple data visualization of U.S. voting records for the 2004, 2008, and 2012 presidential elections, broken down by state. Building off of what I learned in my Game of Thrones visualization, I used ChartJS and React for this project. The data is fed in locally through JSON files I found on GitHub.

April 2019: More properly, this is a revamp of my old portfolio website. Once upon a time, I hosted my portfolio under a different domain and displayed my content with a WordPress theme I found by happenstance. In order to more properly align with my branding, I redesigned the site layout in GatsbyJS and cut out the WordPress middleman entirely. I am now happily hosted by Netlify (and saving dozens of dollars to boot).

A Death by the Data

A Death by the Data

April 2019: A data visualization presented with Django-Chartjs and powered with an ElephantSQL PostgreSQL database. I started with a Kaggle data set examining character death times throughout George R. R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire series and, through my own research, classified manner of death and updated character nobility stats. From there, I normalized my database into third normal form and uploaded my data from CSV files. Line and bar charts then allow the user to explore the relationship between death, socioeconomic class, and gender in Westeros.

Petz

Petz

March 2019: A full-stack CRUD application written with the MERN stack. I collaborated in daily scrum sessions with Cathy Le and Wesley Scholl (Konjo) to divide tasks in a feature-branching Git workflow. In particular, I built the search functionality by iterating over an array of Pet objects looking for matching substring matches. Additionally, I was responsible for writing much of the backend API and eventually launching it to Heroku.

Sororitree

Sororitree

March 2019: A full-stack CRUD application written with the MEHN (MongoDB, Express, Handlebars, Node) stack. Inspired by my time in a sorority during my undergraduate years, Sororitree is an intuitive UI to help chapters keep track of their members. When new members join a sorority, they are assigned a 'big' and are referred to as 'littles.' Chains of these big/little pairings expand and eventually begin to resemble linked lists.

Valentine Generator

Valentine Generator

February 2019: An npm package built with Express to randomly generate valentines. Admittedly, this little app came about when I realized that Valentine’s Day was two days away and I had not planned anything for my partner, Sam. He is also a software engineer, so I wanted to make something to show him how much I had learned just four weeks into my web development immersive program. The app simply generates a couple of random numbers to reference two arrays: one with pictures of us and another with terrible math and computer science pick-up lines. Valentine cards ensue.
