Stop Analyzing Embed (open source) - August, 2020

Stop Analyzing Embed is a beginner-friendly, open source project created and maintained by Banco Do Brasil. Think of it like a Tinder app for products: the user compares two products presented on cards, and chooses the one that they like most. I contributed to this project in two ways. First, I re-wrote the documentation to correct typos and make the information more accessible to beginner developers. Then, I created a button component, complete with Jest units tests, that triggers and animation to slide the cards off of the screen (in the event that the user does not like either option presented).

obNoxious - July, 2020

Invasive species are an issue worldwide, but this app focuses on those species invading North America, specifically the United States. The obNoxious app servers two purposes:

  • To provide an API resource available to the public that contains identifying information about noxious plant species.
  • To provide an interface for authenticated users to report sightings of noxious species, thereby building a user-supported database that maps the distribution of some of North America's most tenacious invaders.
