My background prior to pivotting to Web Development was in big data and banking. A part of the team I was managing at my last job at Berkshire Hathaway had several devs as direct reports for projects. I became fascinated with what they were doing and this was in a Microsoft Dynamics Navision ERP system. When the opportunity came up to adjust my career I embraced coding as my new modus operandi and have not looked back. I am looking forward to a career where I will be constantly learning new things and embracing new challenges.
Inspired by how bad multi-network tv-guide web applications were I set out to create a video-uploader and tv-guide application. The application allows users to upload videos and display them as tiles for all to see and play. With my background in databases building a lean express server quickly was the first step and adding in a 3rd party API call on the back end for the first time on my own was a great learning experience. For the client I focused on getting a working video player both as a large window for my landing page and as smaller sharable tiled windows on the home page while using React for the first time was challenging but ultimately very rewarding and a great way to learn by doing.
Description: A group project focusing on version control with GitHub to recreate Dropbox. In three days. The application allows users to store any type of file to a custom built remote server using Amazon S3.
A major focus of the project was simple object oriented development and not allowing scope creep to error out the entire process.
