YadaGuru Update

The YadaGuru team

In addition to my position at 50onRed, I have continued to volunteer for CodeForPhilly. I work on a project called YadaGuru, a college application reminder app, which I posted about before. At the time of that post (June), we were working on MVP, with a goal to release it to a group of test users to get some feedback.

During the rest of the summer, we finished building the admin portion of the app, and our guidance counselor, Katelyn, was able to finish writing all of the reminder content. We also added a Google Calendar integration, the ability to save as a PDF, and an option to export to iCal. Through the help of Katelyn, we also had a group of students from The City School ready to test out our app.

Overdue Update

New Years Eve Fireworks 2015

One of my many usual New Year’s resolutions (along with eating less and exercising more, of course), is to blog more. I have made a commitment to blog weekly, with Monday nights being my go-to blogging night. So, being today is the first Monday of 2016, it is time for a long-overdue update.

My last post at the end of July was actually a re-post from the 50onRed blog, where I was given the opportunity to do a guest post during my internship there. I am happy to say that, almost 6 months later, I am still there. In September, at the end of the internship, I was offered a position as a CMS Developer with our content team to build and manage several viral content sites. The job has been fun, enjoyable, and rewarding, It is a great feeling to come into work everyday to solve problems, build, and be creative with code. Read MoreOverdue Update

CodeForPhilly and Yadaguru

So, week 1 of the 50onRed has so far been a major success. I have been learning a ton, and have been truly enjoying the work. For the most part, I’ve been working on a Slack integration that I will be writing about in the future.

This week, I wanted to write about the great experience I’ve had so far working with CodeForPhilly.

At the end of April, I was kind of at an odd point in my coding journey. I had just gotten hired into the RedLabs internship, but had a whole month before it would begin. I was still working on Read MoreCodeForPhilly and Yadaguru
