GitHub), 2016 (Civic open source project)Seattle Trails (
This started at the AT&T App Parks And Recreation Hackathon. The app my team and I built uses the Socrata Open Data API to get the trails data for Seattle parks and make it visually available on a map view in an iOS app.
My team is currently expanding it, in collaboration with Seattle Parks & Recreation, to be the official app for the Seattle parks and trails. Currently, this app can allow you to search for trails and parks, see accessibility information about paths, report issues about the parks only if inside of one (determined via geolocation), and share your park experiences on social media. (Swift, Map Kit, Message UI, Social Framework, Xcode, Git, Socrata Open Data REST API)
Film Camp allows people to produce short videos with ease. By implementing pre-editing through constraints, a user can focus on capturing a story. I was the sole developer, on a team of 4, for this project. We tested this with users and adapted the software with their feedback over the course of 6 months.
(Swift, Photos, AVFoundation, Social Framework, Swifty Dropbox, Cocoa Pods, Xcode, Git)
App Store), 2015 (Code Fellows student project shipped to App Store)FoodXClude (
This is an iOS app that can identify whether or not a food contains certain allergens by photographing its barcode. This was a team project that we completed in under 5 days. I set up project management tools and git source control, and programmed network alerts and dynamic string modification with regex. (Swift, REGEX, JSON, REST API, Cocoa Touch Framework, Xcode, Git)
GitHub), 2015 (Code Fellows student project)Stacktastic (
This app interfaces with the Stack Exchange API to access questions based on a search term. I utilized OAuth with a WKWebView in order to obtain an authentication token for the API. The logged-in user can access their own profile information and see lazy loaded images of the users whose questions were returned in a tableview.
(Objective-C, REST API, JSON, OAuth, Cocoa Touch Framework, Xcode, Git)
