About Me

I am a technical and creative person that has always had a passion for building and designing things. For the past four years I have been working as an accountant but recently decided that I was ready follow my passion and become a full stack web developer. 

In April 2016 I completed both the full stack Ruby on rails and front end web development courses through thinkful.com.  These are self paced online courses were I was paired up with a Ruby developer and Javascript Developer that I met with 45 minutes a week. My mentors helped lead me though the class material as well as direct me to other outside sources that helped my learning experience.  In the Rails course I Learned the basics of the Ruby language, Worked through the Michael Hartl Rails book, and created several rails apps.  

My favorite part of web development is the feeling you get when you figure out a difficult problem that you have been working on for hours. I really enjoy challenging myself and continuously learning new things. There is also a satisfaction that comes from creating something and seeing it work.

Hot and Cold Game

Class Project

For this assignment I used functions and jQuery to build a "Hot or Cold" game. In this game, the computer randomly selects a number between 1 and 100, and the player then tries to guess the number. The player gets feedback for each guess – "hot" if their guess was close, and "cold" if their guess was far. When the user guesses the secret number, the app lets them know, and they'll have the option to start a new game.View
