“So, tell me a little bit about yourself…”
I’m a huge fan of current and emerging technologies, so it just made sense for me to pursue a career involving computers. The more time I spend learning certain topics or languages in software development, the more I end up falling in love with development as a whole. Most developers out there tend to sway to either front-end or back-end development. I honestly love being involved with both. I thoroughly enjoy the front-end, because it allows me to use my prevalent creative side to make really pretty, well-functioning websites and web applications. However, I also love back-end programming concepts such as C#, ASP.NET, and SQL, because it appeases the analytical and logical side of my brain. Having hands in both allows me to work on a diverse array of projects, and opens up unknown and untraveled paths in my future.

Front-end capstone project
A Simple Contacts App
For this assignment, we had to use AngularJS to build a simple contacts app, where a user could add, save, and edit their contacts, like they would using their cell phone. A user is required to log in using their Google account, and their contact information is stored using Google’s Firebase. The user can also choose to “favorite” a contact, where it will then show up on the favorites page.
Yesterday evening in class, we started working on our last in-class project, which will carry us through to the end of the program in June. Any time we learn something new in class, from here on out, it will be added to this project.
For this group project, we were tasked with creating an interactive map for the Magic Kingdom at Disney World. Overall, I feel like the project went fairly well. One major thing we did that I believe made a huge impact on our project was our efficient and robust planning.
