Kids For Code Website

August 2020

While working as a programming teacher for an organization called Kids For Code, I created their website using the Bootstrap CSS framework. I last updated it in March of 2021, but it is still up and maintained by the current teachers at Kids For Code. You can view the site live here.

Scriber

June 2020

Scriber is a blogging platform I created as a hobby project, although it is designed to be scaled up to accomodate a large number of users. It uses markdown as a format to store articles, and Amazon S3 buckets to store images. Amazon Lightsail is used to run the server. View a live demo here.

MCPS Sidekick

April 2019

MCPS Sidekick is a grade-viewer app I created and published in my junior year of high school. It originally used web requests to imitate to a server that it was a user logging in via a web browser. When MCPS changed to use a platform called StudentVue, I used their API and created a Dart package for others to use, which I left to a friend to update when I graduated high school. The app allows users to not only view their grades, but to modify scores on assignments to see what their grade would be if they received a different score on an assignment, as well as to add future assignments and input a score for them (ex. to see what grade they would need to get on a future quiz in order to get an A in a class). The project is no longer on the app store, and I am not maintaining it anymore as I'm not a user anymore. It is written in Flutter and released for iOS and Android. The GitHub repository is available here.
