10-Day Final Project

My final capstone project for devCodeCamp is a web application for the owner of a MedSpa business. The idea was inspired by a close family member looking to start this type of business in the near future. The web app provides potential clients information about the business and team running it, the services provide, before/after results, customer reviews, the ability to subscribe to a membership, schedule an appointment online, and directly contact the owner via email.

The goal is for my Med Spa web application to be used to promote her business, but could also be themed differently to accommodate any small business wanting an online presence where the owner does not have the time or resources to run the company website.

The Technologies I used in the project: Python with Django REST API, MySQL, React & React Bootstrap, HTML, CSS, emailJS, and Stripe API.

Hire Me Because…

I am dedicated and passionate about the things I invest my time in – There is no halfhearted effort. Self-improvement is always present in my mindset in many areas of life, particularly with my career. I enjoy collaborating with others and contributing to a team, while also staying driven to produce quality results on an individual level.

Passion For Programming

I made a career change to programming because I wanted more to show for in the things I worked on. Being able to use and say I built the small projects I have created in this short time has already been rewarding. I am confident that building software solutions to solve business problems, make personal lives easier, or just for fun, will further nurture that feeling. Knowing the tech field is a vast world that requires endless learning, I look forward to improving my craft with knowledge and experience for years to come.

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.
