My Path to Full Stack Development

Using the Bootstrap_form Gem with Rails

For the past few weeks I have been working on my Rails portfolio project for Flatiron School. I decided to make an app for sharing Art events.


Getting Back to Work

A couple of months ago, we had an unexpected medical diagnosis in my family. I won’t go into details, but it was very jarring for us. Because of this, I thought it was best for me to take some time off from my Flatiron studies for both mental and financial reasons.


DreamCatcher Sinatra App

I created a dream journal app for my Flatiron Sinatra portfolio project. The app allows users to create an account, log in, and keep a record of their dreams. Users have the option of sharing dreams publicly or keeping them private.


Forms Posting to an Incorrect Route

This week I’ve been working on my Sinatra portfolio project for Flatiron School. Today I ran into an issue where a form was posting to an incorrect route. I spent a good three or four hours trying to figure out what was wrong, so I thought I would share this in hopes that maybe one day it will save someone a few hours of digging.


Creating the SeaLife CLI Gem

Going into my CLI Gem Portfolio Project, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to make. This called for some serious brainstorming. 💡Got it! I’ll make a gem that provides information about sea creatures. Everyone loves sea creatures!
