👩🏽‍🚀 Projects

CoderHeroes, Full-Stack Developer, Technical Project Manager

I am currently a technical project manager for this project. I have focused my team on the interdepartmental notes system. We have created this feature from the ground up using Whimsical and Figma for our designs and organizing our progress with Agile methodologies. Our progresses have been tracked using the Trello kanban boards.
During our daily stand up meetings we have scoped out the sprint's objectives and confirmed progress and direction with the stakeholders and our managers at sprint product reviews.
Using React and associated libraries, we have created an interactive notes system designed to streamline important communications with quick view priority levels and subject and an updatable resolution status. We have styled the designs with multiple libraries and CSS to make the user flow cohesive and easy to use.
Using PostgreSQL, we have created migrations with the Knex library to add persistence on a server level. We've created a RESTful API using Node.js with necessary middleware protecting our CRUD endpoints in our notes routers to add, edit, and delete notes
