10-Day Final Project
For my 10-day sprint capstone project, I created CouchBuddy. A web application that utilizes the IMDb API which holds over 8.7 million movie titles. This application gives the users the ability to create an account, log in, and view relevant trending lists as well as search for a movie. Upon selecting movie users are able to view the movie poster, title, plot, and trailer. They also have the ability to add/remove a movie to either their favorites list to keep track of all their favorite movies or add it to a watch list if they want ideas for later. Users can leave a personal review under any particular movie and also are able to like or dislike someone’s reviews.
Watch my video presentation of this application below.
Hire Me Because…
Jobs to me are a way of bettering my knowledge and skills like when I took on a videographer position for SkyZone and later learned how to run their social media pages. I am someone who puts a lot of passion into my work and will always go above and beyond to meet or better the expectations of the company. I am always looking for new things to learn which is where my passion for coding began.
Passion For Programming
My passion for coding began when I started my own videography company. I was starting to create my website when I began to wonder what went into making a website versus using a website builder online. I quickly went online to see what I could learn about it which led me to my first coding experience and that was making my own personal resume with HTML and CSS. This eventually led me to set aside my business as a hobby and pursue my career in coding through DevCodeCamp. After completing DevCodeCamp I am excited to see what my next big learning adventure will be.
Three Words About My Professional Qualities
Humble: Even though being wrong is very intimidating I am not afraid of it because I know that what I will learn from it will be more valuable than being afraid of it. I enjoy constructive criticism and learning from it is one of my favorite things.
Trustworthy: My desire in any work environment is to be able to be trusted in anything I do or say.
Flexible: I am someone who is always flexible in anything I do. If there is a better way of doing something I want to learn what that is and why.
Three Words That Describe The Best Role For Me
Variety: I always enjoy working on new projects or learning something new, so I don’t become complacent.
Driven: I am a hard-working individual. This started at a young age when I worked for my father’s construction company. He always taught me everything about being a hardworking, diligent, and trustworthy employee.
Communication: I believe that communication in a work setting is key to a successful work environment. I strive to always be the best at communicating with my fellow employees and leaders.
