Hello! I'm Melissa, a Computer Science student at the University of Houston in Texas. I have experience building fullstack applications and I'm currently seeking opportunities where I can continue to learn and grow as a Software Engineer.
Technologies I've worked with
Social Media Search Feature
Showcases a search feature that takes combinations of username, location and tags to deliver matching results.
Uses React as the frontend to validate and manage user input to be sent to an API
The backend API receives a JSON string as a search query and responds with a JSON object containing the results.
Both backend and frontend run concurrently on a server hosted on Heroku
Database uses Mongo DB hosted on Atlas
School Website - for a client
Uses Ruby on Rails web-app framework
Rails Active Record is used to store alerts and user data
Alerts can be managed and posted to the site by an admin
Documents and forms are uploaded with AWS using s3 buckets and are available on the site for download by visitors.
The website is hosted on Heroku and uses a custom DNS
