• DeniseEscobarHi, my name is Denise Escobar. I am a full-stack web developer based in Chicago. I currently work for Chicago Public Schools but I am looking forward to a career change into development. I have been able to combine my two professions at Power Up Tech Academy where in the summer and evening I have taught children to code. Outside of work you can find me busy with personal coding projects or just riding my bike.

    Projects: SwiftList

  • DeniseEscobarSwiftList is my most recent project. It allows a user to connect to the Spotify API and create a playlist with the top ten tracks of the artists they search for. It uses a React for the front-end and Express for the back-end. It was styled using pure CSS.

    DeniseEscobarI loved making this project since it was the first one I took from concept to deployment.

    Projects: Kookr

  • DeniseEscobarKookr is a calender based recipe webapp that allows users to plan, store, and organize recipes from their favorite recipe websites. Users can also export a shopping list based on their calender.

    DeniseEscobarThis app was built with a 4 person team using React/Redux for the the front-end and a Sqlite3 database. My work was split between creating front-end react components and also backend routes. I also learned to implement Stripe API to accept payments for a paid subscription to the app.

    Projects: Treasure Hunt

  • DeniseEscobarTreasure Hunt is a adventure game in which a user must traverse a map and find treasure, eventually acquiring enough to purchase upgrades and the final goal of the game itself. The map was held on a server users could interact with but not change.

    DeniseEscobarThis app was built with a 3 person team using React/Redux for the the front-end. My main contribution to the project was writing functions that made calls to the server and allowed the user to traverse the path and also interact by collecting and selling treasure.
