SQL is a database programming language that involves writing queries to add, delete, update and select data from an applications database. I use MySql primarily as my database, but have some experience with Microsoft SQL server as well.
My Journey is a place where you can share journeys you have taken in life on a timeline.
In July, I was accepted to a Software Development program at Western Governors University. I was pumped, and I wanted to share with others how I fell into Software Development.
I wanted to share my journey on a timeline, so people could see how I really didn't plan to be a Software Engineer, and maybe help other people on their journeys.
While I was planning this project out, I realized I should build a website where anyone could share their journeys, which led me to build MyJourney, a place where people can share journeys on a timeline.View more details
Nursery People is a website for landscapers and nursery people.
This website has over 32,000 plant species and over 350,000 records showing which nurseries grow each of these species.
Some of the features of the website include reviews, user posts, comments, favoriting, and more.
The data on the website is pretty messy, so I built a custom administrative area where I can update plant and nursery listings a lot faster using Vue, and an API I built in Laravel.View more details
Often, you will come into circumstances where you need to append an attribute to a model, or calculate some piece of data from multiple database columns when returning data from your Laravel application. In Laravel, it is easy to make general calculations on single columns, like summing, or getting an average, but when you need to calculate data on say, 2 or more columns you may need to do some raw sql queries.
My wife got me this awesome book by Austin Kleon titled, "Show your Work!". The book is super easy to read and I highly recommend it. The title is pretty clear, but the point of the book is how to share your work and use that as a way to get discovered. Here is me sharing my work.
