Hey there. I'm Aylin.

Outdoor enthusiast turned software engineer. I love taking on new challenges, which is why I entered the exciting field of web development. When I first entered web development, it immediately reminded me of my very first solo backpacking experience; I recognized I had a lot to learn - but quickly found fulfillment in the creative aspect of coding along with achieving the satisfaction that results from problem solving.

Projects

Shakedown

Shakedown is a React web app built with a postgreSQL database. The inspriration came from feedback my team recieved from backpackers (both new hikers and seasoned backpackers). They were looking for an app that would help them keep inventory of their gear, as well as allow them to see collective weight of the things they were packing. All users are able to access the application's main page and the Gear Checklists page. An authenticated user can further access the My Gear section where they are able to inventory what hiking gear they currently own in order to find out what each piece weighs. An authenticated user can move onto the the Build-A-Pack feature to add or delete items of gear in order to determine current weight. This was a final full stack group project and will continue to be developed.

Pack it up. Shake it down. Get outside.

QuizMe!

QuizMe is a Node.js/Express server-rendered application targeted to new programmers practice their knowledge of the ever-evolving concepts, languages, and algorithms of the tech world. Handlebars partials were used to render the front-end views. Settings are stored in a PostgreSQL database. Additions/newer versions will be made in React. This was our first full stack group project.

R.A.D. Hiking

R.A.D. Hiking is a web app created to help users find a list of hikes based on their location input. Using the Hiking Project API, users can access over 74,000 miles of trail while also looking over features like length, rating and difficulty level. Weather information is recieved from the Open Weather Map API. This was my first front end group project.
