PROJECTS

Throughout my coding journey, I built different single-page web applications to practice my new skills and after spending 3 months at the Recurse Center, a self-directed, community-driven educational retreat for programmers, who want to get dramatically better, I came to the realization that what I really enjoy working on the frontend side. JavaScript combined with React can make ✨magic happen.

The project I’m most proud of is the   🛫 Wake-Up and Fly web app. This is a website that tells a user what time to wake up to catch a flight. I built it as I travel a lot and usually, I have early flights.

To use the app, one has to input the flight number and the location from where the person will leave. Additionally, the user can add the time it takes them to get ready if it's more or less than 30 minutes which is the default value.

I’ve developed this full-stack project, designing the user interface so that it looks like an airplane window, integrating four 3rd party APIs, one from Flightstats, for getting information regarding any flight number, and the rest from HereMaps which have the following map functions: Routing, Geocoding, Requesting Autocomplete Suggestions.

Technologies used were React, Express, JavaScript, , Moment.js, Axios, Nodemon and Bootstrap 4.

The most challenging part of this project was understanding the documentation of each API and implementing the Autocomplete for the address field.

I’m really proud of figuring out how to do the time math by finding Moment.js and I’ve learned that for any project the research phase can be quite long.

Due to the fact that my FlightStats API has exprired the app can only been seen live but not tested.

ABOUT ME

My name is Stefi and I am an outgoing and creative person, a sports enthusiast and a world traveler, who believes everything is possible if you put passion and hard work into it.

My engineering journey started two years ago. Although I didn’t pursue a computer science degree, I’ve naturally found my way to it. I’ve participated, hosted and presented at various tech meetups in Barcelona. For example, I've organized study sessions for the Facebook Developer Circle in Barcelona and in December 2019 I spoke ​at ​ ​QueerJS​ in Paris about The importance of community when transitioning to tech.

Ideally, I would love to work as a Frontend Developer in either in a company that offers a product/service for the LGBTQ+ community or in tourism and sports.

When I am not coding, I am either traveling, skiing or fondly watching videos on YouTube.
