Description of my final project

Project Name: Progeny

A full stack Java application using the Spring Boot framework. This project leverages the browser native MediaStream Recording API and saves the recordings in a MySQL database. I assisted in the database design as one of the core features for the site was my responsibility, the adding friends feature. This required and deep understanding of the database structure and how to manipulate that data so that users can request, add, deny, and delete friends. I also took the lead on the websites design. This included CSS styling and some custom illustrations.

Why should someone hire you?

I find the greatest joy in working within a collaborative team. In a team environment, I excel at seeing the bigger picture; guiding and helping others towards the ultimate goal. To better serve the team I work with, I also have the ability to work autonomously. And if I do not understand something the first time around, I spend my spare time trying to make up for those deficiencies.
