Finished Projects

YelpCamp

YelpCamp is a project I made during my web development bootcamp by Colt Steele, this was among my first projects and I took a lot of time during the course to try and develop concepts before being taught to compare methods with the instructor. I worked on it using mongoDB both server and cloud to host the data for session, users, and the campgrounds. I integrated the MapAPI to have a nice custom map and deployed to Netlify.

Contacts Keeper

The contacts keeper is an app I made during my study of the course "React Front to Back" by Brad Traversy, I made it using a full MERN stack so I could have fully functioning user authentication, storage of said users contacts, and a nice interface for them to see.

Github Search App

The github search app is another app I made during my study of the course by Brad Traversy, "React Front to Back", it uses the github API ad was my first experiment with React and a fun way to work with API's and make a basic front end app for interfacing with the Github API.

About me

Hi there! My name is Dahlton and I'm 23 years old, I started taking learning web development seriously around a year and a half ago during my tier 2 technical support job. I have always loved learning different languages but never found one that really clicked with me, I first learned bash for scripting when I started using Linux in early middle school. I then branched out learning little bits of multiple languages to develop and solve any problem I faced, using Arduino/C to work with embedded electronics and develop my own weather sensors, and then Python for various web scraping projects and even an Oregon Trail type game! Eventually, I found my niche in web development, I started using languages and frameworks such as HTML5, CSS3, Vanilla Javascript, and the MERN MongoDB, ExpressJS, ReactJS, NodeJS stack for full stack development. I became passionate for web development for its wide range of capabilities and widespread usability, I often would run into the issue of accessibility with showing my projects to people that may have issues installing software, from then I found with web development I would be able to continue making the things I have been and still be able to share it with anyone with much more ease. I then knew I wanted to turn my hobby into my career, I took up a bootcamp taught by Colt Steele and while learning that I made my own projects along the way and learned the importance of Github, I started trying to post daily to Github to keep my skills sharp and to continue in my pursuit of knowledge. I have a passion for learning overall and would love to pursue a life in web development. Please contact me below if you are interested in talking or working together!
