I’ve been lucky enough to get to work on some amazing projects for some great people and organizations. Here are some of my favorites.
Commissioned by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Redesign Challenge provides a platform for educators across the USA to discuss common problems in the classroom and collaborate together to develop solutions.
It was my first project as a professional developer and my first time working with both Angular and Bootstrap. I worked on both the front and back ends of the project and was almost entirely responsible for some stages. It was also my first time doing localization on a Rails project.
It was a fantastic learning experience and building something that thousands of teachers are using to improve the education system in the USA is a fantastic feeling.
Commissioned by the Mayor of Medellin, Colombia, Patrimonio Medellin is the foundation for showcasing all of the cultural heritage sites in the city of Medellin.
Currently showcasing Statues and Architectural sites, the Patrimonio Medellin site is intended to make information about the heritage of Medellin available to the public at large, but especially to the students. Prior to this project, this information was kept in locked offices in a government center and not available to the public.
This was my first time using React JS and we built it using Leaflet and GeoJSON to make it easily sustainable for the client so they can continue adding content easily as it becomes available.
This was also my first time participating in a UX/UI sprint so I got to experience first hand just how helpful the exercise was in defining clear expectations for both the client and developers.
While attending the WDI, I was able to participate in Startup Weekend, Women’s Edition. I was the lead developer for the Heartful.ly team which focused on offering people the chance to use a charitable wedding registry instead of or in addition to a traditional one. The project, which won startup weekend, recently left beta and is fully up and running.
Working with a team of 3 other developers, our goal for the weekend was to build a Bootstrap front-end that could be dropped onto a Rails back end which was already in development. The final product of startup weekend, while basic and bearing little resemblance to the current design, played a big part in helping our team win.
More important than winning though, was what I learned. I was still a student at the time so it was my first time working under strict deadlines and as a part of a dev team. Learning to code in a way that plays well with others was an invaluable lesson, and one that served me well when I started my career as a developer.
