10-Day Final Project

My MERN stack capstone project was a website for avid readers looking to expand their horizons.  Readers will be able to see how other readers rate books, and what they say about the books that they have read.  Get ready to find new titles, and authors to explore! I used an API from the New York times, and a Google Books API.  I used MongoDB for my database to hold my user’s information.  For the backend, I used Node, and express to set up my routes.  React was used to make a friendly UI.

Hire Me Because…

I know how to work hard.  I can work solo or in a group setting.  I am adaptable and learn from my mistakes.  I like to be challenged and will work hard to make sure I achieve the goals that are set.

Passion For Programming

I love puzzles, and games that make me think.  Writing code or looking for a bug in the program is one giant puzzle.  I love the satisfaction that comes when seeing something I write run, or finding the bug and fixing it.

Three Words About My Professional Qualities

Teachable: I can learn, and am open to constructive criticism.  I strive to be better and taking feedback is a big part of that.

Dedicated: Dedication is a huge part of who I am not just professionally but personally as well.  Once I have taken on a task I will finish it.  I don’t quit just because something is hard; I find ways to address the problem and make it work.

Adaptable: I can adapt very well to meet the needs of either the team I am working with or to fit a specific problem.

Three Words That Describe The Best Role For Me

The best role for me would be a place that I can learn, and grow.  A great team environment to work with and lean on.

Watch My Capstone Presentation

A 10-day sprint that starts with each students’ idea. They are responsible for architecting this application, researching and learning any new languages or technologies to complete it, and build the final project. Since this is their crowning achievement during our course, instructors are very hands-off during the lifecycle of the development of their capstone.
