Description of my final project

The World Lottery For Charity

The goal of our application is to run lotteries and raffles to benefit designated charitable projects. We incorporated a google translation api to allow users to view page in any language they choose. The games are set to randomly choose one ticket from all the entrants after a preset amount of time, so there is always a winner. This functionality is completely automated on the back end with task scheduling, cron jobs and event listeners. It is mobile responsive. We also used a Javascript library for the live timers you see in the bottom righthand side of the screen showing the time until the next world lottery drawing happens. This application has been created using version control through github with over 400 commits and 125 pull requests. The front end was created using HTML, CSS, Javascript and a jQuery library. For the backend we took a MVC approach utilizing 5 separate apis, 3 currency conversion widgets and 15 database tables in MySQL all within the Laravel Framework.

Why should someone hire you?

Im and extremely driven and eternally cheerful person who is excellent at problem solving and coming up with creative/innovative solution to problems. I enjoy being a full stack developer in that I working knowledge of how the front end display has to work with the backend seamlessly for a good client experience.
