I love baseball that was my dream when I was a teeneger and during my first Bootcamp project I built a Command Line Interface (CLI) MLB player list from an API with Ruby.

The first thing I ever built for myself was a website for our wedding to practice HTML/CSS/JQuery ๐Ÿ˜…

It was definitely not as high quality as my wife deserved, but it was the starting point for going down the JavaScript road ๐Ÿฅณ

Not counting MS-DOS colour changes in the 80's, it was likely HTML for MySpace or some other page building site. I loved that I could change everything without additional resources from parents or outside sources. Still do.

The first thing I built with code was a quiz based on the game The Sims, as a bootcamp assignment. It was the first time I was able to understand working with Javascript truly and it was awesome to come to life. That and I was able to see who my true Sims nerds were!

My portfolio site was my first project. My portfolio has evolved throughout the past 6 years I've been a developer, but the first version of my portfolio site holds a special place in my heart since that was the first thing I designed then built by myself.

A terminal-based application, which took name and address as inputs, and returned a friendly message that "Hi [name], your items are shipped to [address]." ;)

It's true.

Made it in C-language. (It was the first programming language that I learnt :)

I wanted to replicate the math I was reading in a book - and used QBasic to plot points (slowly) to render the logistic map with user-supplied parameters.

I built a card deck in Java. Then I built upon the card deck and created the card game War. It is a rough application but it functions. :)
I am most proud of a pie database I created using SQL.

I think I remember using some rudimentary HTML as a pre-teen on my GeoCities site. ๐Ÿคฃ

An HTML website about myself (a CV). I improved it with some CSS. That's as far as I have gotten in terms of coding in general. #newbie
