This is part of a series in which we share with you the projects our students have been working on. Projects are one of the most valuable parts of bootcamp; working on them allows you to graduate with a portfolio of actual work that demonstrates your knowledge to employers. You can also check out the projects from our January 2019 cohort here.
One of our favorite days each semester is Demo Day, when all of our cohorts—that would be NYC’s Fullstack and Grace Hopper programs, Fullstack Chicago, and our Remote track—present their capstone projects and show off what they’ve built. In the three weeks leading up to Demo Day, students work together in teams to find common interests and goals and then deploy the skills they’ve learned so far to solve a problem.
To get an idea of what the day looks like check out the highlights of the event!
On our most recent Demo Day, students presented 22 amazing presentations, and we wanted to share a few of the projects with you. We’ve picked a handful to feature, and the full playlist of all the presentations is here.
Audio streaming app on Ethereum Blockchain
Team Members: Alvin Tang, Ryan Ferreras, Ines Zenk, David H. Friedman
Campus: Fullstack NYC
With all the streaming apps currently out there delivering full albums, new releases, and collaborations straight to our ears, it can be easy to forget the financial struggle of smaller artists who aren’t making much off each stream with the current platforms. Chaindora aims to change that by using Ethereum blockchain technology to disrupt the industry and help every artist get paid for their work. Blockchain is starting to be used across many industries, and the technology here allows an artist to upload a single, creating proof of ownership and a smart contract that allows that artist to get paid anytime a user presses play.
Practice code & track your online developer presence
Team Members: Abbey Mondshein, Derek Harmanli, Erina Kii, Matthew Berman
Campus: Fullstack NYC
As if job searching isn’t hard enough no matter what industry you’re in, as a programmer you’ve got multiple resources floating around on the internet that display your skills and interests. This makes it hard on you—and potential employers—to paint a clear picture of who you are. Codemore solves this problem by creating a place that displays your account info from sites like Codewars, Stack Overflow, Hackernoon, Github, and Medium to accurately portray what you’re up to. Codemore uses the NERDS Stack as well as Docker to securely evaluate user code.
AR app displaying 3D furniture in the real world
Team Members: April Daley, Bianca Neptune, Justine Lee, Miyuki Abe
Campus: Grace Hopper
If Marie Kondo has got you all up in your to-do list and ready to clear out your space and rearrange your furniture, join the club—but how do you get started? It can be frustrating and inefficient to shuffle furniture all around the house trying to see what works and what doesn’t. Haven allows you to render 3D furniture into your real-world environment to play around with interior design and see what will fit in with your space. The app was created using the Viro AR platform, React Native and React, Firebase, and Amazon Web Services.
Hands-free recipe assistant
Team Members: Marilyn Chu, Wendy Sung, Stephanie Coy, Celine Chole
Program: Grace Hopper
Now that recipes are almost all online, keeping your device clean while you’re in the kitchen can be pretty difficult. Who wants to wash their hands ten times throughout meal prep because they have to keep going back to their laptop? Julia is a recipe voice assistant here to save the meal (and your hands). Inspired by Julia Childs, Julia walks you through recipe steps as you cook or bake. You can even adjust the time for each recipe to reflect how long it really took you because let’s be honest, it often takes a lot longer than the recipe would have you believe. Julia features a number of technologies, including Node, Express, Postgres Database, and Redux.
Collaborative travel-focused productivity mobile application
Team Members: Tori Pope, Steffeni Veren, Grant Weiss
Traveling with a group of people can make or break relationships—and special shout-out to the ones who get stuck doing most of the planning and coordinating. Pack is an app that takes the stress out of group planning, allowing you to share flight info, organize itineraries, and assign to-do items to people on your trip. No more group text going off at all hours of the night, or friends who claim to have missed the latest email thread. Pack also requires a majority of your group to vote on an activity in order for it to be added, which takes out some of the obligatory nature around building a shared itinerary. Like the other apps, Pack used a number of different technologies—notably Firestore to allow users to collaborate and Yelp API to help travelers pick fun things to do.
