Dev Bootcamp

Wrapping up at DBC with “Bring Home To Mom”

It’s been an amazing 9 weeks at Dev Bootcamp. I’ve learn so much more than I thought I would in 9 weeks, and more importantly, made many new connections and friends. Each one of my cohortmates will do big things.

During the last week of DBC, we pitched ideas to the entire school and the best pitches were selected to become final projects. I couldn’t ask for a better team (Jonathan Berk, Sofie Garden, Kevin Ceballos, and me). We were all motivated, self-driven, and always the last to leave the building. I knew I could rely on each one of my teammates to push the project forward. In just 7 days, we’ve packed SO many features into our app while still keeping it simple and easy to use on the frontend.

Some of the technologies/frameworks we used include:

  • Ruby on Rails
  • PostgreSQL
  • Javascript
  • JQuery
  • AJAX
  • handlebars.js
  • Faye messaging system
  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • Responsive Grid System
  • Stripe API
  • Twilio API
  • Cloudinary API
  • Rotten Tomatoes API

Some of the features include:

  • Create child profiles
  • Smart matching system based on filters and interests
  • Autocomplete
  • Dates dashboard
  • Design a date page
  • Choose a date experience
  • Real-time messaging system
  • Pre-fund dates
  • Text notifications
  • Responsive design
  • Asynchronous updates for best user experience and minimal page reloads

And finally, here is Bring Home To Mom (51min-104min):

I will miss you guys!
