A Digital Lectionary Dashboard
Liturgical.li is a digital lectionary for pastors and those who follow the liturgy. It calculates the current liturgical week, season, and year, and displays the weekly reading according to the Revised Common Lectionary in the user's preferred translation.
Year In Books
Data Visualization Tool for Readers
Year In Books takes data from your GoodReads and uses it to create graphs and charts on what kind of books you read, when, and how often. Currently, only a mock-up of my own year in books is public.
My journey as a front-end developer started in 2017, when I decided to take on new challenges in my career. After several years in digital publishing and social media, I grew frustrated with the limitations I encountered when designing websites and interactive experiences for my readers.
Knowing I was ready to take on more responsibilities and challenges, and eager to bridge the gap between what I believed the digital space needed and what I could create, I spent the next eight months learning to code. As I grew proficient in not just web development, but also front-end, my passion for programming eclipsed the reasons I had first learned to code, and I decided to become a front-end developer.
I am passionate about programming because it empowers me to create solutions to problems. My unique background gives me the ability to identify problems and needs that programmers with more traditional backgrounds don’t see.
