My project idea was to give tech companies a better organization tool to help with projects. Starting with the front end this is the file structure i utilized:

Models: like the name implies, is where my models are located. For this SPA i only needed a project model that would handle the project and the team lead. Inside the project.js, the structure looks very similar to the way we write our Ruby classes. To create an object in javascript we use whats known as a construction function. Think of it like a “blueprint” for creating many objects, kinda like the…


Here we go again, a long list of project requirements. Getting more and more technical and integrating more concepts and features. My Ruby on Rails project for Flatirons was based on my Sinatra project but this time written in Rails, a bigger and better framework than Sinatra. I got to say, making a wed app in rails was so much easier(when i got more practice in it) than Sinatra, it was actually quite fun to do.

You get a whole bunch of built in features with rails that can basically almost wright all the code for you. From generating a…


I would have to say that finding a topic to base my Sinatra app on was one of the more challenging parts to my project with Flatirons. Maybe it was because i had forgotten about the Minimum Viable Product or MVP for short.

Then i got to thinking and not to long ago, i fell in love with playing all sorts of games with family and friends. And no Im not talking about video games, Im…


I got to say when i was getting ready to start my phase 1 solo project with Flatirons, i was overwhelmed with fear and doubt. Mainly because i was faced with this, a blank page, scary am i right? Deciding on what my project was going to do and how the CLI was going to interact with the user, didn’t help much either.

Listening to other students and our awesome Ed coach i told myself. “Ok, i don’t need to make it the most awesome program in the world, i just need to make it simple.” I started by finding…


This is my family. My oldest son is going to be 3 years old and my youngest just turned 5 months old. They are my everything, so when i was asked to write a blog (which i have never done) about why I decided to start studying software engineering, only thing that I could think about was my family and our future. But when I thought deeper on the question, I came to the conclusion that it was more than that.

Going back about 3 and a half years I started working for a small local electrical company. To be…
