Leave is the final capstone project. I worked together with the same two folks as in previous projects. We created a travel itinerary app using React.js, Node.js, Express.js, and PostgreSQL. We also used Redux to manage state. For styling, we used Sass and Bulma.

Books in Space was another group effort, consisting of the same two folks I worked with on the Drums in Space project (hence the play on the name). This project aimed to create a book library application for storing and managing books on a virtual shelf.

Books in Space

We used a pretty simple combination of Node.js, Express.js, Bootstrap, and PostgreSQL to build the application. As a team, we divided up responsibilities to develop features more rapidly. I worked on the front end, designing the overall layout, colors, and features, and then eventually helped build the routes and API endpoints we would use to store the books and retrieve them from the PostgreSQL database.

I want to revisit this project in the future. While we have completed all of the requirements for a passing grade on this project, there are still a few important pieces of the unfinished project due to time constraints. The first piece I would like to revisit is the login and authentication system. Some of the routes will also need cleaning up and front-end features that manage storing a book on the “shelf”.

All in all, this was a great learning experience as I felt more comfortable working with Express.js and the stack as a whole. I also learned how to organize and separate concerns between routes and controllers. I look forward to working with these technologies again, even if on a new project.

This blog post is part of a series of posts giving some background on a few projects that I’ve worked on during my courses at DigitalCrafts.

One of our first projects in the course was a group project where we used HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, p5 library, Tone.js, and vanilla JavaScript to create a functional website. My group consisted of two other folks and myself. Since we all enjoyed music, we decided to develop an

Recently I went down a rabbit hole that lead me to learn more about SPF, DKIM, DMARC, and BIMI. While many resources cover the benefit of setting up these records, some information is still not quite as readily available. Here’s what I learned on my quest.

It’s been a while since I’ve worked on any projects lately, so I decided that it will get me back into the swing of things if I start writing about a project. I didn’t have the repo cloned or this site, so the first thing I did was pull it down from GitHub.

The updates I’m going to be sharing will mostly be for the projects I’m working on. In this case, it will just be the current website and the Nutter Home Designs website. Sometime soon, I’m going to be working on
