Besides the Ruby on Rails Back End Engineer
An optimistic extrovert would greet you if we met in person. The world is a fascinating place full of culture and history. When I have time, I travel with my family. We experience the world together, and I wouldn't have it any other way. When I am home, curling up with my animals is one of my favorite things. Photography is how I express myself and Technology is my jam.
My parents and my brother and the love we share motivates me the most without a doubt. The unconditional love of my animals, two Golden Retrievers named Bella and Bogie and a very laid-back black cat named Duke.
In the future, I would like to be creating useful, easy-to-use web applications that improve peoples lives. Traveling, I would like to be doing lots of traveling, photographing life along the way.
A Few of My Blogs About Coding
Here we are, the beginning of week 5 at The Iron Yard. We have sailed through so many different programs, and gems, at a speed that would give anyone whiplash, all leading up to Rails. We finally made it! Last Thursday we began building our first Rails powered web application. And just like that, in the blink of an eye nearly everything we learned in the last 4 weeks, all of that code we wrote, all of those hours spent making it all come together, all of it, no longer necessary! Everything we had learned to build on our own, every line of code, it was all there. All it took was a couple of commands in terminal and like magic it all appeared.

A Silent Auction app where I worked with 3 other people via GitHub. We created an app that could be customized to match any event. It requires authentication to enter, and emails you when you have been outbid on an item. Admins login via a covert link and only admins can add, edit, or delete items. It also emails preauction and post auction reports to the admin that is logged in and requests them.

A Real Estate App where people can look for houses, or list their houses for sale, the landing page is unique, and authentication is required for everything except searching. It has a favoriting function and pagination
